The flags will be displayed and people will Tweet and Post on Facebook about such a fad today. People and celebrities will wear what is called the Filipiniana and Barong Tagalogs as symbols for the symbol minded (as George Carlin would say).
What does it mean to be free to day in relation to all this drama and show that the media display together with the meaningless babbles of the Yellow President. We are just remembering what is past but what important is how we live our life today.
I say we must continue to fight people who want to control us, the education system who wants us to think the same and be same with the rest of the population, who wants to control what we say, despite what the media is calling freedom of speech, fight those people who are still in power despite the democratic sytem, and also fight religion for enslaving all of us from reason, secularism and science.
Words are words and so I do my best to live my bigoted ideas. Happy indepence day!
