Our identity crisis!

Posted on

La Bella Filipina by Félix Resurección Hidalgo

José Miguel García

How are we to provide a safe haven to our 13-million documents dated from Spanish times which are now very much prone to decay and corruption since the rooms are so humid, the facilities of our National Archives of the Philippines for maintenance are so poor? What we have there, are parchments that shape our national identity.

How are we to take interest in providing a safer location and structure for these documents in our National Archives of the Philippines if we cannot even understand what is written on them because they are written in Spanish? How can we, when we are not even interested in our national identity — the critical factor that makes us protective of our brother filipinos?

The decay of our documented national developmental code is endangering our yet to be recovered national identity.
