... I remembered I own two shirts with "4th of July" designs. The white one had stitched hat (that looked like Uncle Sam's hat) and some beads that looked like fireworks, the other - a red shirt with this heart design that looked a bit like the American Flag. I quickly ironed the shirt and took some pictures and edited it to be posted for this week's Quotography post.
USA has a big influence to the Philippines, at one point in time our country celebrates Independence Day every fourth of July, too, until former President Diosdado Macapagal declared the 12th of June as the Philippines' rightful date of independence. The same president also declared this day (04 July) as the Filipino-American Friendship Day to commemorate the joint forces made by Filipinos and Americans against the Japanese during World War 2.
Since the design of my shirt was heart-shaped, I went to choose something about "the love of country," and even if this image bears the colors and design of the American flag, I think the quote suits whatever nationality.
Happy Filipino-American Friendship Day,
Happy 4th of July!
