Lupang Hinirang

Posted on: June 25, 2011

I know it’s a bit late to celebrate Independence Day but I wanted to post this video’s different take on the national anthem. I saw it at the event Rocio and I hosted last week. (You can see some pictures of that here).

Anyway, I should warn you that if you’re PMS-ing and feeling patriotic this might make you well up. I think compared to the cookie-cutter videos which show historical monuments and past presidents, this one sends out a stronger message about where the Philippines is today and where we need to go. Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!

A tad melodramatic perhaps but I like it.

So simple yet so telling. Good one! There are so many messages to be read here: children are the hope of our country, patriotism is developed and realized best in public spaces and kids should chuck the iPads, go out and start climbing trees again! 😛
