The monument of freedom



 

"Every Filipino today stands a little taller and a little prouder.  No longer the butt of jokes and  the object of pity or derision, Filipinos can take their place in the council of nations because they are one of the few races who have done the impossible."
                                                                                     -Philippine Daily Inquirer
                                                                                  (Editorial, February 27, 1986)
