Its another historic move for Pres. Arroyo for making June 12 as working holiday. As expected, there's a scarcity of attendees for the yearly parade at the Luneta Grandstand. Even the Flag raising ceremony at Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit, Cavite City was said to be done by a civilian. Does it mean that Filipinos now doesn't care more about its Independence?
The 109th Independence Day celebration was noteworthy even for its short parade and small crowd. But some who who did attend the said affair said they saw no significance in the day itself. Even the leaders of our Congress were noticeably absent in the invitation. Students were also invisible unlike the previous years.
Well, time is passing by and I just don't like remembering dull moments. I usually went there to cover the event specially if its holiday. But now, because of the declaration of Pres. Arroyo to move the holiday on the 11th, I missed the celebration and instead i just prefer to go to the office and be more productive.
I just browse some files in my digital back-up and cherish the colorful celebration at least in pictures.:)
