12th of June, Independence Day... Is It?


When you study history it is easy to say the story behind that particular date. But when you just let the subject passes through, you actually don't have any idea about it. Today, it is a tragedy that only few students does their homeworks and only few knows about their past, their history. So can we still say June 12 is the Independence Day of the Philippines? Is it?

At present, it is much easier to get information about history and the intriguing stories underneath, but having the actual facts of the incident is quite unreliable. Only few websites that can actually say if it is true or not, unless you verify if the author is like Ambeth Ocampo.


Most of the reasons why history is said to be boring is because the personality who taught history in primary and secondary schools are just forced to teach history. For them history is like a sheet of manila paper with list of names, dates, and places only. Another reason is that the structure and medium used in teaching the subject. Gives them more confusion in learning history.

Now, tell me, what happened to the cause of independence when even the one that is ought to be the hope of the country is no longer the hope but mere problem. You cannot injected independence when these students are still shackled by the wrongs of the past teachings. History should be entertaining in a way that todays student would definitely have a sense of patriotism.  

So, do you celebrate Independence Day because you acknowledge what our forefathers did to win that momentous day or you just simply flow with the bandwagon of independence celebration?
