This is Emilio Aguinaldo's statue right in front of the Barasoain Church in Malolos, Bulacan. Barasoain Church played a significant role in the Philippine history. Emilio Aguinaldo is the first president of the Philippines and made the church his residence during his term of office. For more about Barasoain Church, go here.

How very interesting, that the first president made this beautiful church ( yes, I did click to read more about the church) his main dwelling.
A rare gesture.
I wish the Filipinos all well, and am thinking a lot on the victims of this terrifying hurricane.
