Remembering Bonifacio

The Spanish Title below him translates, "President of the Tagalog Republic"

In two days we will celebrate the birth date of a hero, Gat Andres Bonifacio, the Father of the Philippine Revolution.

Andres Bonifacio has proven to us that the Filipino is truly worth dying for. He and his men have been injured and killed fighting to free us from the clench of the Spanish Crown. And in many respects, he was successful, though he shall not live to see the day of our freedom. Andres Bonifacio has shown us that no battle is too difficult to lodge and no war is too bloody to fight if done in the name and spirit of freedom.

He has contributed to our freedom by lending no less than his life into the pursuit of it; his wife and family even contributing their own time to see the Revolution through; and they have succeeded, we all have. And for that, we thank him.

Without the courageous effort of Bonifacio, we may have the Euro as our currency today and may have been part of the progress of Mother Spain, but what the hell! He gave us the greatest gift of all — FREEDOM.

Happy Birthday, Gat Andres Bonifacio. Mabuhay Ka! Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!
