Message of Governor Bong Lacson for National Heroes Day

We again remember our heroes who contributed greatly to shape our nation and acknowledge with great respect their courage to fight for our independence.

Heroes are produced by time and circumstances. Heroes are made the moment they respond to the call of the times and make the necessary, and oftentimes courageous sacrifices for the common good.

To our frontliners from healthcare, emergency response, police, military, security, and delivery services; and also, to our street sweepers, garbage collectors, drivers, line-men, laborers, and farmers, you were the ones who bravely and unselfishly embraced the task to make the lives of your fellowmen less difficult in this time of crisis.

Your courage, together with your self-sacrifice, is the highest form of homage our present society can bestow to all those who fought for us in the past. With that, we give you our utmost respect and gratitude.

To everyone else, let us honor this day by practicing a more conscientious, active, and responsible citizenship, for we are still in the course of a fight for our health, safety, recovery, and of course, freedom.
