Ninoy Aquino’s 35th Death Anniversary Remembered By Fernandinos [ Tuesday, 21st of August 2018 | 4 years ago ]
Local officials and employees of the City Government of San Fernando trooped in front of the monument of late Senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr., at Heroes Park this morning to commemorate his 35th Death Anniversary.
A short program was held despite the continuous rains wherein the local hero’s descendant Senator Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV, together with city officials headed by Mayor Edwin “EdSa” Santiago, led the unveiling of the monument and wreath laying ceremony.
Mayor EdSa highlighted that Ninoy’s life itself was his greatest contribution to the country for it served as a way to restore freedom and democary.
“Tayo ngayon ay nagtipon-tipon upang sariwain ang kabayanihan ni Ninoy at ipaabot sa bawat isa sa atin, lalo na sa mga kabataan, ang tunay na diwa nito. Kung walang nakaraan, wala tayong paroroonan,” he added.
For his part, Senator Bam thanked the local government and the Fernandinos for remembering his uncle. He even said that the rain seems to be a sign from Ninoy in heaven.
“We’re happy na sa panahon natin ngayon ay may ala-ala pa rin kay Ninoy Aquino. Medyo matagal na pero sabi ko nga maganda na naaalala natin na may mga taong nagsakripisyo para sa ating bayan,” he added.
The senator also hoped that Ninoy’s bravery and sacrifices will serve as inspiration to the Filipino people in order to face the current challenges and work towards the betterment of our country.
“Sa aming mga lingkod bayan, maganda (syang) example upang siguraduhin na lahat ng ginagawa namin ay para talaga sa bayan. For the people, maganda na maalala na may lingkod bayan tayo na handang ibigay ang lahat para sa inang bayan,” Senator Bam explained.
Also at the event were Vice Mayor Jimmy Lazatin and Councilors Harvey Quiwa, Reden Halili and Gustav Henson, CSFP Arts and Culture Council led by Chairperson Dr. Lourdes Javier, Teresita Lorenzo of National Commission on Indigenous Peoples Region 3, United Architects of the Philippines and other private partners.
