Philippine Independence Day? – Maybe It’s Up to Us!

by Leonard

What are your memories of PND?  Earl Bales?  Seton Park?  Mississauga Valley?  Nathan Philippines Square? Do you remember when we took over the SkyDome?  Were you there for Super Soaker battles?  Laying on a banig in the sun?  Pork BBQ on sticks?

Those memories now seem like that old Fresh Prince “Summertime” video, but just like Will Smith’s haircut and fashion sense from back then, they are played-out.  Where once it used to be easy to figure out what to do and where to go, never mind come to terms with the true meaning on June 12 — now it’s confusing and complicated.

Perhaps WE need to step up and define what June 12 means to our generation.  The following event is a great start:
