Philippines observes the Araw ng Kagitingan or Day of Valor in honor of all our heroes

Wazzup Pilipinas?!

Araw ng Kagitingan or Day of Valor is a nationwide regular holiday celebrated annually on the 9th of April. 

Today, we commemorate the fall of Bataan during World War II and the start of the “Bataan Death March”. 

This holiday is to pay tribute to the greatness and heroism of our Filipino fighters during WW2. 

Today marks the Day of Valor otherwise known as “Araw ng Kagitingan". We must not forget the people that fought bravely for our country’s independence and freedom. 

The Philippines observes the Araw ng Kagitingan or Day of Valor in honor of our heroes who offered their lives for our freedom. 

Today, we hail our modern heroes -the frontliners at the hospitals, the barangays, and on the streets for keeping us safe. 

Valor is defined as great courage in the face of battle. In today’s time, this battle is against the virus that has plagued the world.

Just like the defenders and healers of our nation, let us continue the fight for a better Philippines.

Bravery comes in all forms. This is a salute to all our heroes!  

Today is not just an ordinary day. Today is a day wherein we honor all our heroes of the past and as well as our modern-day heroes. They gave their tomorrow for our today. With that, we are forever grateful. 

In commemorating Araw ng Kagitingan, Vice President Leni called on Filipinos to find hope amid dark times and to be ready to make sacrifices for the greater good, as shown by the country’s soldiers who died in World War II. 

The commemoration of the Day of Valor teaches us to honor the courage of our forefathers and the sacrifices of our frontline workers today.

These acts of heroism remind us to be altruistic, patriotic, and fearless.

What we need are men and women with the following attributes:


Show us what you got.

Keeping silent isn’t choosing peace. 

Silence is not peace.

Choose peace.

We remember our great heroes who fought the battle. But we all must also find the greatness within us to fight and conquer our own battles.

Now that another superpower is expanding its sphere of influence and blatantly stealing territories from my homeland, it’s super shameful that the ones who are supposed to protect our nation are the ones letting these foreign power take over without a fight.

What can the Filipinos do against China if the President himself can’t even defend the country? It’s beyond Asia right now. There are a lot of territorial conflicts happening, and it’s more on political.

So to Westerners, if you see Asians being angry with China, see if they’re at risk of getting invaded first before telling them they’re racist.

It’s not your place to say anything, after all.

In the Philippines, we remember the brave, heroic, and patriotic men and women who fought to defend this country now being ravaged not by guns, cannons or tanks but by the incompetent leadership of a psychopath.

May we be reminded that the victory of toppling the WW2 Japanese forces was made possible through the struggle of the Filipino masses. 

The HUKBALAHAP, through its guerilla tactics, played a central role towards freedom.

The Americans, meanwhile, only re-entered the battlefield when the Filipinos are already in the cusp of victory -- and grabbed credit as the country's saviors. 

79 years have passed by, the imperialist-capitalist US, and China, haunts the country with its exploitative interests.

Let us be reminded as well, similar to how the masses achieved victory from colonial forces during WW2, the collapse of modern-day imperialism lies in the collective, revolutionary struggle of the masses.

Arouse, organize, mobilize! Down with US and China imperialism!

A Day of Valor. 
A Day when We Fell. 
A Day when We swore to Rise Up. 
Let’s Take A Swear Again....
Never To Fall For Theatrics Of Any Politician!

Here’s to the selfless, everyday heroes who take on extraordinary tasks! 

We stand with every Filipino who continue to bravely fight for what is right in this country! 

Stay Safe. Stay Strong. Stay Connected.

May the Filipino be inspired to be more fearless and united in overthrowing the dictator.
