Army brigade chief keynotes Independence Day rites in Dipolog

Dipolog City (12 June) -- "Start working your way to progress."

This was the gist of the message delivered by Col. Roland Amarille of the 101st Infantry Brigade before a throng of government officials and employees, students, non-government organizations, civic and religious leaders joining the commemoration of the 111th Philippine Independence Day at the public plaza in this city today.

Amarille posed questions about genuine independence and asked how one should view it. To him, independence does not only entail freedom from foreign aggression and colonizers but freedom from hassles in not being able to provide for food, clothing, medicines, education and other basic needs in the family.

"Life is not by chance…it's a matter of choice," said Amarille adding that "if one desires not to live in poverty then he/she should start charting his/her course in life toward progress and prosperity."

Discussing this year's independence day theme, "Kagitingan, Kagalingan at Kasipagan tungo sa Tunay na Kalayaan," Amarille stressed that freedom should extricate one from poverty and bring him/her to progress and prosperity in life.

"Success in life, however, does not come without embracing the values of gallantry, competence and industry," concluded the brigade commander. (PIA-ZN) [top]
