During the virtual celebration of the 123rd anniversary of the proclamation of the Philippine Independence Day, Filipino Institute founder Mr. Gabriel John Rimando highlighted the importance of being free and having the freedom to develop oneself.

“[Over a century ago], naging alila tayo ng mga dayo. Ang Independence Day ay reminder sa atin na pagsikipanin natin. [It is celebrated] not only to remind ourselves that we were under by our conqueror. Gawin natin itong reminder para ma develop natin ang sarili natin. Sa ngayon kasi, ang giyera na tinatahak natin ay hindi na against sa ibang bansa, ang giyerang tinatahak natin ay against sa sarili natin,” he said. 

“Ang giyerang ito na dapat every day, every taon, neri-remind natin yung sarili natin na maging matatag tayo sa mga pagsubok sa buhay para maging malaya tayo sa mga pagsubok sa buhay. So, guys, maging reminder po sana itong independence na ito na lalon nating pag igihan ang sarili natin,” he further added. 

During the online celebration, President Rodrigo Duterte, Philippine Ambassador to the UAE, and Philippine Consul General Paul Raymund Cortes deliver their speeches on the celebration of Philippine Independence Day.
