Vice President Leni Robredo on Monday (August 27) paid tribute to the sacrifices of the country’s unnamed heroes, saying they are role models for modern-day Filipinos.

In her message for the commemoration of National Heroes’ Day, Robredo said heroes showed what it means to be a true Filipino.

“Mga bayani man ng nakaraan, o mga bagong bayaning patuloy na nagsisilbi sa bayan, nawa ay maging inspirasyon sila sa ating lahat sa gitna ng mga pagsubok na ating kinakaharap. Ang kanilang halimbawa ay pagpapaalala na tayo mismo ang susi sa pagbabagong ating hinahangad,” she said.

Robredo said Filipinos can look to heroes for inspiration in fighting for the country and preserving good values.

“Ang mga aral na ating mapupulot sa kanilang mga buhay ay nananatiling mahalaga, lalo na sa mga panahong hinahamon ang ating demokrasya,” she said.

Aside from the heroes who fought for the country when it was still under colonial rule, Robredo said Filipino migrant workers and soldiers are among the people that the public should look up to.
