The Department of National Defense joins our Muslim brothers and sisters in celebrating the Feast of Sacrifice.
This holiday in the Islamic faith highlights the importance of unwavering devotion, fortitude and unity in times of trials. It is a chance for us to reflect on our values, with this auspicious day inspiring us to look beyond the comforts of our own lives and reach out to others in the spirit of empathy and service.
May the observance of Eid al Adha remind us all Filipinos here and abroad to look out for one another, and forgo our differences for the peace and progress of our nation.
I wish everyone a joyful and blessed Eid al-Adha.
Delfin N. Lorenzana
