i think that the history is our past experience and we should know it to grow up in future and i like to read historical books with their heroes and adventures. The experience of my grandparents make me feel better person when i understand about their fights and their ways to be saved in the history.

hi elly1384! I also love reading history books and articles catering my country's past events. My grandmother also told me different stories about World WarII, her favorite story to tell was about Japanese Colony. It was when Philippines was occupied by Japan and she was very young back then and experienced a lot of struggles and hardships. I also watch National Geographic and Discovery Channel every weekends (like today). Recently, they featured "Hitler" and "D-Day" story/documentaries. I've learned a lot of information about Hitler's regime and war that kills a lot of people. It made me appreciate my life more. I become more aware of what had happened in the past and it makes me proud of people you fight for freedom. I am also grateful for having a wonderful "history", we have great heroes that served our country in the past. It feels good going back and having a glimpse of what had happened before. Thanks for history books, documents, articles and internet for reminding us of our past history. happy lotting!

Yeah, the interesting thing is how effectively the Spanish was able to hold sway in the Philippines for 300+ years with only a handful of Spanish present in the islands. Also it is quite unique that being a colony of Spain that the Philippines is the only Spanish Colony that does not speak Spanish. I will never forget World War II and how the Philippines was left 2 fend for themselves when we were a colony of the United States back then. Only for our Colonist to put more importance to Europe. They did not even have the audacity to inform us that there would be no help forthcoming sacrificing needless lives in the defense of Bataan and Coregidor.
