Duterte said the heroes dedicated their lives to ensure that future generations would have a full and comfortable life.

“We are forever grateful for their noble deeds and sacrifice. Let us honor them by upholding the rule of law, protecting our nation and fostering goodwill among ourselves,” Duterte said. 

“We will harness the same virtues as we continue to fight against lawlessness, criminality and poverty that hinder us from achieving our full potential.

“As we commemorate the life and works of our national heroes, we must continue to embrace their ways in our daily  undertakings. Let us emulate their example as we continue to realize our ideals and aspirations for ourselves and for our country.”
