We do not have classes today. It's a national holiday. This day, National Heroes Day, commemorates the bravery and the courage of heroes who have stood up to fight for this country's freedom. This day is declared as National Heroes’ Day by virtue of Republic Act No. 3827 of 1931.

While Jose Rizal is remembered every 30th of December and Andres Bonifacio every 30th of November, other heroes who do not have a legal day set as remembrance for them, is remembered on this day. In choosing August as the month for this celebration, is actually based on the events that transpired in August 1896 such as the Cry of Pugad Lawin and the Battle of San Juan del Monte.
In this day and time, we also have unsung heroes and the nameless heroes who continue to live among us, day by day. This day is for them too.
