Marcos made the remark during an event at the Libingan ng mga Bayani in Taguig City as the country celebrated National Heroes Day. 

“Sa ating pagdiriwang ngayon, inaalala rin natin ang kabayanihan ng mga beteranong nakipaglaban nung panahon ng digmaan. Makakaasa kayo na ang pamahalaang ito ay mananatiling aktibo sa pagsusulong ng mga programang tutugon sa inyong mga pangangailangan lalo na para sa kanilang mga rekisitong pangkalusugan,” Marcos said in his speech.

“Kaisa ng Philippine Veterans Affairs Office, magpapatayo tayo ng mga ospital sa Visayas at Mindanao na ilalaan natin para sa ating mga beterano,” the President added.

(Together with the Philippine Veterans Affairs Office, we will establish hospitals in Visayas and Mindanao for our veterans.)

Marcos also remembers workers in various sectors, which he called “modern heroes”, such as farmers, industry workers, teachers, health workers, police officers, soldiers, community leaders, ecological warriors, and overseas Filipino workers.

“Habang ang mga makabagong panahon ay nagbibigay sa atin ng mga pagbabagong kailangang harapin, tiyak na malalampasan natin ang kahit na anong pagsubok kung magiging bayani tayo sa ating mga sariling pamamaraan,” Marcos said.

(Even as modern times present us with changes we have to face, we will be able to overcome any challenges if we will become heroes in our own ways.)

“Gamitin natin ang ating kakayahan upang panibaguhin ang ating kapaligiran para sa higit na ikakabuti ng lahat,” he added.

(Let us use our skills to install change in our surroundings for the betterment of everyone.)
