Lupang Hinirang

I bumped to this video at Jayvee's blog. This video has indeed moved me as it reminds me of how proud I should be as a Filipino. The message of the video is very simple, yet it touches my heart.

With all the controversies surrounding the Philippines this days, I hope that we would be able to revive the patriotism and love for our country.

This rendition of Lupang Hinirang is intended for reflection. It is not meant to replace the official anthem normally played as a march.

Recently a talented and nationally known film director, Mae Paner, crafted a new and moving version of our national anthem. This unusual audio visual presentation of “Lupang Hinirang”* has been shown many times in various events and has consistently touched the hearts and minds of viewers to the point of tears of awakening and gratefulness.

Because of its consistent positive impact, PAGASA and Ehem! have decided to make this version of “Lupang Hinirang” available nationwide as a reflection piece to trigger a deeper awareness of oneself in relation to the country and encourage the emergence of positive images of the Philippine future.[source and video link]

I am using this AVP for 3 years in Leadership, Volunteerism, and advocacy event for the youth, I am involved or I have organized. It's good for reflection, for re-awakening the spirit of nationalism, and for setting of the atmosphere in the venue when you have those kinds of activities. It really moved me and inspired others.

I hope this small but sincere video will touch more Filipinos to care and love the Country.

Thanks for sharing, kuya.

For better Philippines!
