Philippine Independence Day 2012

12 06 2012

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.
– Thomas Paine –

Freedom has its price and the price is to ensure that the freedom we enjoy will not be taken away again – to be constantly vigilant of those who we allow to lead and of ourselves that we do not take away the freedom others deserve. A free society must be a society where each member gives respect and confers constraint where due. While we fight for a corrupt free government, we must also fight for a corrupt free self. In no way can we expect leaders of our society to do us right, when we as the society do not always do right.

Freedom is our cause. Freedom is our cost. Freedom is an obligation we allow for our fellowmen. Happy Independence Day! 🙂
