President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Monday called on Filipinos to realize their own potentials to be heroes of communities.

Marcos said this as the country commemorates the National Heroes’ Day.

In his message, the President emphasized that each Filipino has the capacity to be a hero of our nation.

“Hence, on this year’s National Heroes Day. I enjoin every Filipino across the globe to celebrate with a renewed understanding and sense of pride for the fortitude that is naturally abundant in our hearts as a people,” Marcos said.

“As we recognize our forebears whose uncelebrated legacies our society is built on, let us also realize our own power to become heroes for our families and communities,” he added.

The President expressed hope that this consciousness would ignite the public “to be dedicated in our agenda of creating a new Philippines that is strong, prosperous, resilient, and secure for present and future generations.”

Marcos said it is crucial to remember the lives and deeds of the many lesser-known and unnamed Filipinos who played pivotal roles in shaping our nation.

“From the defiance of our ancestors against the first invading forces to the diligence that our soldiers and statesmen held to see the last of them off -our unsung champions prove that heroism is not limited to the Herculean; it also includes the honest, earnest, and compassionate living that we do every day,” Marcos said.
