"Lupang Hinirang" (GMA 7) [HD]

Not very many people are familiar with the story of the Philippines. As with many former colonial territories around the world, our history and journey to freedom is stained by the blood of our kababayan.

However, these sacrifices were made to ensure our country’s future and were made in the spirit of hope for prosperity and development.

One of the comments on this YouTube video states:

"…it is not about war/torture and the video is not supposed to portray that idea, at least for anyone that takes more than a few seconds to watch it. It is about not letting people bully you, staying proud of your culture/heritage/people and fighting back when they try to take any of it away even when the opponent is much bigger than you are. It shows that the Pinoy people are resilient and won’t just stand by when you try to destroy their identity.This is what’s inspiring!"

On behalf of the Filipinos, Filipino-Americans, and everyone who has ties to our country:

Maligayang araw ng kalayaan, Pilipinas!

Happy Independence Day!
