Vice Gov. Lacson: “Remember our Forefathers”

In celebration of the Cinco de Noviembre, Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson urged Negrenses of today to remember our forefathers who showed heroism and gallantry so that freedom will be enjoyed by the present generation.

He said that our forefathers paid the ultimate sacrifice just to ensure control over the land which they believe is for them and for our generation. 

According to the vice governor, we should be thankful that our forefathers showed bravery to face whatever consequence during the war as they carry fake arms and cannons that led to the surrender of the Spanish forces in November 5, 1898. 

Lacson said, while we are only remembering what happened many years ago, the message of freedom, bravery and courage displayed by the early Negrenses should remain as our inspiration as we face the challenges of everyday life. /Capitol News
