MANILA, Philippines — Vice President Sara Duterte on Monday called on Filipinos to use the sacrifices of the country’s heroes as “light and inspiration” in protecting the Philippines’ independence and interests.

In her message for National Heroes Day, she reflected on how the Filipino nation was “marked by the blood of our forebears who selflessly offered their lives for the liberation” of the country and the Filipino people.


“Today, let us honor our National Heroes with a promise that their sacrifices will serve as our light and inspiration as we vow to protect the integrity of our independence and the interest of our nation against those who wish for us to fail, to fall, and to break as a nation,” Duterte said in a statement.


Duterte urged the Filipinos to honor the nation’s heroes by remembering and celebrating their patriotism and “look at the future of our country and its unrelenting longing for the same profound sense of patriotism from us.”

She said the blood of the country’s heroes is the same blood of “bravery, selflessness, and love of country and fellowmen” that permeates into the minds and hearts of many Filipinos “who have committed to the cause of rebuilding the nation from the rubbles caused by disunity, hatred, misunderstanding, and acts of hostilities.”

“As we look back, may we never squander the lessons of the past and instead use them to awaken all the greatest heroes inside the hearts of every Filipino, especially the youth,” she added.

“Patuloy nating mahalin ang Pilipinas,” the Vice President said.
