August 3 on Rock Ed Radio>> Some Untold Stories of the Filipino-American War

Dimly, our parents and grandparents remember singing the 'Star Spangled Banner' every morning in school. For a stretch of time, the American flag waved above (or beside) the Philippine flag in all the public structures in most Filipino towns.

The Treaty of Paris was signed during the month of August. The Treaty wherein Spain "sold" the Philippines to the US for $20 Million.

Let's ask Lizza Nakpil what she has studied and observed about this period in our nation's history.

We also want to find out how the Phil-Am agreements of yore still affect us today.

Importante itong topic na ito, at KAILANGAN na nating pag-usapan. Panahon na, huy.

Ilang porsyento kaya sa asal at hilig mo ang Amer'kano?

Gusto kong isipin na PINOY NA PINOY ako pero alam ko na karamihan ng aking mga habits at mga taste sa lahat -- music damit lalake porma salita asal --ay naka ugat sa amerika, pinagmanahan ko ang aking ina na walang ibang pangarap kundi maging citisen ng amerika kasi beterano daw ang tatay nya sa fil-am war.

may libro ako na nakuha ko pa sa lumang baul ng lola ko, libro daw iyon ng isang sundalong amerikano noong nandito pa sila. 'book of hymns' yun, pampagaan siguro ng loob ng mga amerikanong sundalong nawalay sa kanilang pamilya para makidigma dito sa Pinas. Dun ko nga nabasa yung "Jesus, I" ng ZWAN ni Billy Corgan, remake pala yun at dasal pa.

Iba kasi ang talino ng mga ‘kano ee. Binibili nila tayo ng walang paalam, umbaga hindi natin alam, inuunti unti na nila tayo. Pano? Oha, paano tayo makakatyanggi kung hawak nila o nasa kanlia karamihan ng mga primary needs natin?

Paano natin to maiiwasan?

I'm not good in history. But I'm really interested to learn. Unfortunately, most professors nowadays don;t teach the real essence of our history.

fakeplastictree said...

Filipinos should give more importance to National Heroes Day. Most people forget about this important date.

Rizal didn't want democracy. He wanted to show how corrupt/mean some gov't/friars were. Ibang motive talaga. Totoo yung point na Americans chose him..

route196 said...

In the classic debate of Bonifacio vs. Rizal, which figure has your vote for being our national hero?

Anonymous said...

Talaga bang trinaydor no Aguinaldo si Bonifacio kaya nadakip si Bonifacio ng mga gwardiya sibil?

boysaksak said...

American occupation is boring compared to the crazy Japanese and Spanish era.

jincamba said...

For me, dates are not that important. What's important are the events themselves. But in school, most professors only care for the dates. Not what happened.

king said...

Dapat kasi pag history ang usapan, hindi bullets ng names at dates. Astig yung Enrique - di ko alam yun.

android said...

Elementary kids are confused as to where the first Christian mass was really held. Iba-iba kasi yung nakalagay sa history books. Saan ba talaga yun?

Anonymous said...

Is it true that Aguinaldo was the first dictator?

hulingtakipsilim said...

How come Bonifacio understood the French Revolution considering that he was incapable of reading that in the first place?

psis said...

Ang sad nga lang ng kinahinatnan ng Bonifacio kasi may nabasa ata ako na nasa museum somewhere in Manila yung remains nya na hinukay after nilibing. Tapos nung binomba yung Manila, ayun, wipeout yung mga labi nya.

pepeng buraot said...

May scandal na ba yung mga panahon nila Rizal, Bonifacio at Aguinaldo?

jincamba said...

What's being a Filipino anyway? How can you say you're a Filipino by heart? We are a country composed of mixed culture. A little bit of this, a little bit of that. So what's Pinoy?

martin said...

Do you have untold stories of Gen's. Antonio Luna nad Gregorio del Pilar?

Anonymous said...

Why do Filipinos give little attention to days like National Heroes Day and Araw ng Kagitingan? They should treat them as memorial days rather than holidays.

miko said...

Alam ko lang names Graciano Lopez-Jaena, GomBurZa, Emilio Jacinto. Ewan ko ginawa nila. Sad reality.

pepeng buraot said...

Sino yung mga unsung heroes natin noon? Yung mas deserving na matatawag nating bayani kesa kay Bonifacio at Rizal?

hulingtakipsilim said...

Just want to know if Leonor Rivera had really married an Englishman who engineered the earliest railways from Dagupan to Manila?

Anonymous said...

Saya ng discussion. Mainit habang umuulan dito. Pangit ba talaga si Juan Luna and did he murder his wife? Is it true?

Anonymous said...

Tanong ko lang kung may fabrication din yun tungkol kay Gen. McArthur? Bonifacio's existence should not be questioned.

pepeng buraot said...

Bakit maraming cover-ups ang Phil history natin? Majority dito hindi nila nilalathala o nililimbag sa mga libro natin.

zeus said...

Is it true that almost all of our heroes were freemasons? A mason told me that.

android said...

Siguro mas marami pang namatay na Americans kaysa sa count na iyan. Posible na iniba nila yung bilang to cover their "possible massive" losses.

cyrus said...

Bakit kaya wala pang nagcoconfute ng validity ng pagiging national hero ni Rizal gayong alam ng mga Kano lang ang naglagay sa kanya sa ganun?

Anonymous said...

Can you tell us something about the capture of Aguinaldo by the Americans? May nakita ba syang advantage sa pagpapaexile at pagtanggap ng pera from the Americans?

boysaksak said...

If you people were given the choice how do youi want to be executed guillotine, hanging, firing squad, a stab in the heart, or poisoned?

Anonymous said...

Napansin ko, dati yung mga nakaposition in gov't noon mga may kerir sa war. Am I right? Eh ngayon?

fakeplastictree said...

We have memorial days for heroes like Diego + Gabriela Silang, Francisco Dagohoy, Sultan Kudarat, Emilio Jacinto, at Gregorio del pilar.

Anonymous said...

Si Agueda Kahabagan pala, sino ba talaga siya?

Anonymous said...

Maybe the guests can dicuss about Rizal's retraction?

Anonymous said...

More disturbing historical footnotes..Was Rizal just a fence sitter? Did Aguinaldo set up the deaths of Bonifacio and Antonio Luna?

boysaksak said...

Is it true that the reason why the colt.45 (the gun) was invented was because the Kanos could not pacify the Moros in Mindanao?

Si Ms. Nakpil ay naging head ng Nakpil Publishing, may dalawa na siyang libro pero hindi pa History books. Uncle niya si Leon Ma. Guerrero (ang unang nag salin ng Noli Me Tangere at El Filibusterismo sa Inggles). Nanay niya ay isang manunulat din ukol sa ating kasaysayan na si Carmen Guerrero Nakpil. Aminado siya na anino lang siya ng kanyang mga tanyag na kamag-anak pero malawak ang kaalaman niya dahilan sa kasalo niya itong mga ito sa usapang-hapunan mula sa kanyang pagkabata.

Salamat sa inyong pag kinig.

lumingon ka ngayon sa kinauupuan mo o hinihigaan mo ngayon. Garantisado mey bahid na kano ang productong nakikita mo.. maski sa banyo o nasa kulungan ka man ngayon. Mey kulutrang "western" pa rin yan.

Hindi maitatakwili sa kultura mong pinoy na, minsan dumaan ang kano sa ating lupang hinirang. Sa aking pag mamasid sa lupa ng kano. Bakit marami pa ring sinasabing sila ay isang "irish", "italian","german", "chinese" or "puerto rikan". Bakit diba nasa "merika" na sila?. Sabi nga ng mga romano. "If you are in Rome do what the romans do".

Tulad na lang ng "puerto rikan" isa silang bansa. Ayaw nila sa kano PERO, ayaw rin naman nilang bitiwan sila ng kano. Bakit? Iba siguro ang privileyo ng pagigiging isang kano. Sa tingin ng mundo. Sila ay first class citizen. Pero balik tayo sa bakit "in amerika, there are always italians, germans, russians and puerto rican" Ayaw ba nila silang tawaging isang 'kano?

Ahh..hindi ko alam kung gets nyo.. pero ako.. Amerika the country is the best the human race have invented. in that case the british have invented.. or the spanish (amerigo de vecpucci).

Cheers mate' eh!
