Independence Day may take on a very different meaning with the recent happenings in Marawi, and while most of us can only send food and supplies to those displaced and pray for our soldiers in the frontlines, June 12 can also be a good day to educate ourselves, our families, and our friends that freedom comes at a cost, and that history should never be forgotten.

The National Museum, which is often closed on Mondays for maintenance, is open to the public on Independence Day from 10am to 5pm. Now is the time to honor the works of Malang, who passed away last June 10, as well as to visit the Spoliarium by Juan Luna—something which every Filipina should see at least once in her life. Spend your Independence Day appreciating the stories of the past so that you can work to improve the present.
