Most countries in the world were shaped and molded by what they had
experienced in the past. Disappointingly, only few recognizes the people
that played roles in shaping their nation.
In relation to this, I think that this particular quote from Jose Rizal's
Noli Me Tangere applies to what I was saying:
"I die without seeing the dawn brighten over my native land. You who have
it to see, welcome it--and forget not those who have fallen during the
Similar to the experiences of the Philippines, the United States have also
experienced wars and revolutions. Eventually, these helped the nation reach
its current status. But apparently, most people forgot to remember the
people that brought them to what they are in the present.

With high regard for the American soldiers who fought for freedom, Freneau
expressed such feeling through a powerful idyll. As I was reading through
the poem, i sensed a feeling of triumph amidst the "death" of the soldiers.
Despite their downfall, America was liberated. And it was through their
bravery and sense of patriotism that this happened.
I especially liked the lines--
"None distant viewed the fatal plain,
None grieved, in such a cause to die--".
It depicted valor with strong will that even pursued death. I can just
imagine the soldiers running towards the battle field with gnashing teeth
and weapon-clenched fists, ready to fight... ready to die... ready for
I would like to honor the Americans for such bravery and will. But I must
not neglect my countrymen who fought for the same cause, perhaps with the

Philip Morin Freneau lived as a nature lover and a very patriotic man. His
intense love for his country is very vivid in his innumerable writings. He
basically wrote a number of anti-British pieces.
Moreover, in his writings he was able to combine his appreciation of
nature to the political situation being faced by America during his era.
This later on is said to have paved the way of Transcendentalism in
Reading his biography, I found out that he was supposed to study ministry
but then in sudden turn of events he found himself writing poems expressing
his great devotion to his country and his indignation against Britain.
Even these days he is regarded as the Poet of the Revolution and the Father
of the American Literature.
Based on my readings, I could say that he made use of Godís gift of writing
in service to his country. He served as a guardian in protecting the
Americansí moral and uplifting their self-image in spite of the turmoil and
travail they were experiencing because of the war.
I am very much impressed to realize how he skillfully used his pen to
express his disgust to the English country yet be able to produce
masterpieces of writings which up to know are regarded as important
contributions from his time.

"Then rushed to meet the insulting foe;
They took the spear--BUT LEFT THE SHIELD."

I was told when I was very young that if there were no nation, there will
be no home.What we are enjoying now came from those whom foght with lives.
War is the most horrible and cruel reality. Soldiers should be the most
respectful people. They use their precious life to fight for a better
nation for their fellowmen.Be thankful, cherish the life we have.
