Have you ever thought how Manila was won during world war II?
I have no idea.
It's probably because nobody bothered to teach us the 1945 liberation of Manila. It could have been easier to see it right in textbooks but I didn't find that in the curriculum or my history books. That bothers me, we've lived here for the longest time but nobody knew how our own capital Manila was fought for.
It's a good thing there are people out there who believe we should know what exactly happened at that time. Buhay na Kasaysayan, MD Juan Enterprises in cooperation with the Intramuros Administration, Department of Tourism and HERO Foundation proudly presents “KALAYAAN – A Battle Reenactment of the 1945 Liberation of Manila”. This will happen at the grounds of the Old PC Cuartel on Sta. Lucia Street, Intramuros, Manila on March 24, 2013 that's on Sunday at 4:30 PM. All proceeds of this event will go to HERO Foundation, Inc. who provides scholarship and support grants to kids and families of our fallen soldiers. This is their way of helping these kids have a new lease in life. This private organization has already helped 2,376 scholar orphans and need more to help children and or dependent siblings of Filipino soldiers who are killed on duty or completely incapacitated while serving the people of this country.
For those who would like to inquire about this presentation, kindly confirm via www.herofoundation.com.ph or contact HERO’s contact number at 0917-822HERO (4376). It's not to late to be a hero, even in your own little way.
