The seeds of hope

My grandfather is a World War II soldier who had fought our freedom against the intruders and conquerors. It has been his wish that his greatness and courage as well as his co veterans will be remembered. In our home there are three children - two from my older and fourth brothers and one from my uncle. The 3 kids aged5, 2 and 1. Yesterday is Rizal's Day and my grandfather wants the kids to do what to commemorate the real meaning of independence and he asked them to offer flowers in memory of those who fought for the independence of the Philippines. The three kids though innocents were able to offer flowers and make it as a tradition that every 30th of december is a day in memory of the heroes. Truly, my grandfather said to them, "you are the seeds of hoe"
