Baguio City Mark Go called on Filipinos to honor heroes’ sacrifices.
The Baguio politiko made the remark in his Independence Day message.
“As we celebrate Independence Day in the country, let us revisit what it means to be Filipino, what it means to honor the sacrifices of our heroes and freedom fighters in 1898,” Go said.
He said “bayanihan” and unity is needed more than ever because of the coronavirus disease (COVID19) pandemic.
“The revolution called for unity and bayanihan then, and today’s situation calls for unity and bayanihan now,” Go said.
“COVID-19 crisis affects us all, regardless of age, country, gender or class,” he added.
