Happy 123rd Independence Day, Philippines!

My beloved country is celebrating its 123rd Independence Day today, June 12. We have been under the Spanish colony for 333 years and on that fateful day, our heroes decided that enough is enough. We need to break away from the slavery of the colonizers and establish our own identity.

Some leaders of each country greeted the Filipinos on its important day, one of whom is the personal greeting of current American President Joe Biden. After Spain, its the United States who took over and colonized our country until 1941 when the Japanese invaded us during World War II.

This year, Manila Christian Computer Institute for the Deaf made a special message greeting and posted it in our Official Facebook and Instagram pages.

“Maligayang Araw ng Kasarinlan, Pilipinas”

The oversized head of a small girl donning an “I-Love-You” sign is designed by our deaf teacher Ervin.

Last year, we created two special greeting image posts.
