National Heroes’ Day refers to a number of commemorations of national heroes in different countries. In the Philippines, we celebrate it every fourth Monday of August. This year, we celebrate it as an August 26 holiday.
In line with this, read President Rodrigo Duterte’s message this National Heroes’ Day.
The president calls everyone “to reflect on our history and honor the brave souls who courageously fought for our freedom.”
“I truly believe that every Filipino is a hero who can build on our vibrant legacy of fortitude and resilience,” he added.
