Proud to have the same birthday as revolutionary Tandang Sora

“…one can really reflect how in the late 1890s, an old lady stood up to help Filipino rebels in their fight for freedom. Tandang Sora actually joined the Katipunan at 84 years old, easily the revolutionary army’s oldest member.

Despite her old age, she joined the Katipunan and helped the wounded Katipuneros during the Filipino revolt against the Spaniards. Her small sari-sari store housed the group’s secret meetings and often supplied their food. It is said that Tandang Sora remained poor but found content in helping her countrymen.” –From Loqal
