Cruz said this year’s anniversary theme “Pananagutan ng Bayan, Para sa Tuwid naDaan” also reminds us to be proactive and reflect on how we can keepcontributing to the independence we are ourselves are enjoying.

City administrator Rufino Amor praised the general’s appeal to patriotism andnationalism saying that it is very vital in the attainment of progress anddevelopment.

Amor said after we were emancipated from the bondage of colonial rule for morethan a century, we seemed to have not attained progress because of ourapathetic and regionalistic attitudes.
