Speech of COC for Mayantoc

(Speech delivered by Cong. Charlie O. Cojuango during the ASEAN Landmark
Lighting on August 8, 2017 at Don Francisco Memorial Auditorium, Mayantoc,
Tarlac at 7:00PM)

Today is a momentous day for Mayantoc. It is one of the 50
historical sites chosen by the Department of Foreign Affairs-
ASEAN for the Landmark Lantern Lighting.

This lighting activity is both symbolic and significant because
this coincides with the commemoration of the Golden
Anniversary of ASEAN as this year, 2017, the Philippines also
takes the helm of ASEAN Chairmanship by our president,
Rodrigo Duterte.

As one of the participating municipalities, Mayantoc, was also

This place is historically significant because this is where
General Francisco Macabulos, a Filipino patriot who led the
Katipunan revolutionary forces, finally surrendered to the
Americans. (Please check if this is correct)

Mayantoc is blessed with abundant yantok trees and vines.

Americans. During those turbulent years Filipinos were fighting
for freedom and independence.

Amidst the struggle to become an independent nation, internal
conflicts and division among its leaders were also plaguing our

To this day, it is still our predicament. Unity seems to be an
elusive dream that we, as a country must continue to work for
and achieve.

Let me take this opportunity to call on every one to consider this
Landmark Lighting as an opportunity to reflect, that the lantern
does not only become an image but a TRUE SYMBOL OF HOPE

Hope does not begin and end with a wish and a desire. For Hope
to be achieved, it has to be supported by action and
commitment. We have to ACT for a change within us, and the
COMMITMENT to change for the better until we attain

May the symbolic lantern that we will light up today, become a
guiding light for all of us towards a bright and better future.

Maraming Salamat at Mabuhay!
