A BARANGAY chairman in Angeles City has called for heroism amid the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic.
Few days before the celebration of Philippine independence on June 12, Balibago Chairman Rodelio Mamac Sr. has underscored heroism and unity in order to win the battle against the worldwide health crisis.
"Sa panahon ng Covid-19, maging dakila at bayani sana tayong lahat at magkaisa para labanan at masugpo ito upang makamit din natin kalayaan laban sa Covid-19," Mamac said.
The barangay chairman said that Philippine flags are placed in streets and in front of the barangay hall as a symbol of the Filipino people's pride and freedom.
"Taon taon tuwing darating ang buwan ng Hunyo nilalagay natin ang mga bandila sa mga lansangan at harapan ng barangay hall bilang simbolo at karangalan ng ating kalayaan at kasarinlan," Mamac said.
The gesture also includes the honoring of recognition of great citizens and heroes who sacrificed their lives for the country's future generations, according to the village official.
"Kasama na rin dito ang pagpupugay at pagkilala sa mga dakilang mamamayan at bayani na nagbuwis ng kanilang sariling buhay para sa susunod na henerasyon at lahi ng ating bansa," Mamac added.
