Happy Independence Day to the Philippines!

It has been 112 years since Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo proclaimed the Philippine independence in Kawit, Cavite and the start of the First Philippine Republic.  I remember the lecture of my professor in college that it wasn't actually Aguinaldo who waved the Philippine flag.  Whoever waved it, he sure made history.
