To be honest, I was expecting a ‘normal’ fieldtrip. It is where you go to a ‘foreign’ land where it takes hours to travel and many other locations before we get there. So when we arrived at the venue I thought that “this is not a fieldtrip, I pass here every day on my way to UP.” Then I realized that I don’t even know that it was named Bantayog ng mga Bayani and shame on me I don’t know what Bantayog really means up to that day.
But like any other fieldtrips at the end of the day we learned something new and something worth sharing to others. In my case, I’ve realized how lucky we are to enjoy the freedom we didn’t even fight for. We should be thankful for those who sacrificed their lives and fought for our nation’s freedom. We should not take things for granted. I’m not saying that we should also die but as students and as citizens we should do our responsibilities and duties to our country and to our society. In our little ways we could help to develop our society and not be a burden to our country.
