President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Sunday showed appreciation to his family’s long-time supporters as he remembered the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos on his 105th birth anniversary.
“Maraming salamat po sa mga nakiisa sa pag-alala sa ika-105 na kaarawan ng aking ama, ang dating Pangulong Ferdinand Edralin Marcos Sr. ngayong Setyembre 11, 2022,” the President said in a Facebook post.
“Salamat sa taun-taon ninyong pagsama sa amin upang sariwain ang kanyang alaala at magpaabot ng inyong suporta.”
The chief executive attended a mass at the Libingan ng mga Bayani in Taguig City. He was accompanied by former First Lady Imelda Romualdez Marcos, family members, relatives, and their supporters.
In his remarks, the President expressed gratitude to the supporters of the Marcos family for joining them every year in the commemoration of their patriarch’s birth anniversary.
“Ang isusukli ko lang sa inyo, sa inyong suporta, sa inyong pagmamahal ay ang magagandang performance na aking gagawin sa darating na taon,” he said. Marcos said the celebration of his father’s birth anniversary is “to keep his memory alive.” “
It is a rebirth, of not perhaps the physical body of Ferdinand Marcos, but it is a rebirth of his dreams, of his wisdom, of his love for his country,” Marcos said. “
Let us keep that flame alive. It is reborn. Let us keep it strong and bright and let it guides us through all that we do in the future in the service of our beloved Philippines,” he said. (Rod Sadian)
