Today, my motherland is celebrating its 114th Independence Day. I may be thousands of miles away from "home", but my heart and prayers are united with millions of Filipinos hoping for a brighter and properous Philippines.
Feeling homesick and nostalgic, I thought I'd share these beautiful pictures of Calle Crisologo in Vigan, Ilocos Sur, Philippines taken during our visit in September 2011.
"I have always loved my country and I am sure that I will love her until death ..... happen what may, I shall die blessing her and desiring the dawn of her redemption."
