On the Day of Valor, President Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr. commended Filipino people for showing the world their “indomitable spirit” in the face of challenges and adversity.

In his message, the President pointed out that the country has faced numerous challenges that "tested our faith yet showed the world the indomitable spirit of every Filipino."

“Defined by our feats rather than our trials, we have emerged as a nation that stands tall and proud, guided by the principles of justice, truth and democracy,” Marcos said.

“We have staunchly proven time and again that we are never the same after each adversity for we always rise to meet every challenge head-on with grit, grace and determination,” he added.


To honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice and gave their lives in pursuit of democracy and freedom, Marcos said that “we may also reexamine our values and honor their lives by speaking up against discrimination, extending help to those in need and working toward a better future.”

“May we also learn to make wise and sound decisions so that we may address our country’s pressing problems with compassion and concern for others,” he noted.

As the nation commemorates the sacrifices of the country’s forefathers who fought long and hard for its freedom, the President called on Filipinos to “bear in mind that our actions today determine the future of our country, including the succeeding generations.”

“Together, let us strive toward developing a more humane, fair, and progressive society that allows our citizenry to relish their liberty and achieve their individual and collective aspirations,” he said.

On Monday, Marcos leads the state ceremony for the Araw ng Kagitingan at the Dambana ng Kagitingan, or the Mount Samat National Shrine in Bataan.
