“We honor not one or a few names, but the countless others who were, or continue to be, animated by the same imperatives that drive us in times of crisis: Love those beyond your immediate circle; expand these circles to go beyond family or friends; care for the community, care for the country,” she said.

“Do this, despite fear and uncertainty. Fight, if necessary. Do not shrink from struggle or sacrifice. Be kind and be brave,” added Robredo.

According to, Leni Robredo then paid tribute to frontliners who are risking their lives battling COVID-19 pandemic.

Meanwhile, President Rodrigo Duterte also lauded the frontliners or the so-called modern day heroes, here and abroad via a taped message.

“I hope that the bravery of our Filipino heroes, past and present, will inspire us all to face and overcome even the most unfavorable situations. Together, let us become everyday heroes as we pursue a better future for everyone,” he said.

The National Heroes’ Day or Araw ng Mga Bayani was initially celebrated on the birth anniversary of Andres Bonifacio (November 30) but it was later moved to the last Monday of August to commemorate the Cry of Balintawak.
