Man pays respect to national anthem in a mall while others continued walking

SHARE:

While other people continued walking in the mall, this man stopped to pay respect to the national anthem.

Ever since we were in grade school, we were already taught to pay respect to our national flag and anthem. The customary salute should be practised by standing straight and putting one's right hand to his left chest while the national anthem is playing.

Once the familiar rendition of 'Lupang Hinirang' plays, even if you are walking, you need to stop whatever you are doing and pay respect to the national anthem. This was strictly implemented in our schools, but how many of us would actually keep up with this practice?

This man showed his patriotism by stopping in the middle of a mall to give salute while the national anthem is playing. The viral photo was originally posted in Facebook by netizen Un Nah Lou who allegedly spotted the man in a mall somewhere in Bacolod.



This person is a man with integrity, patriotism in our country. Brave and pure blooded Pinoy.
The caption spares little details on what really happened but the photo says it all.

In a following update, the poster later then identified the man as 'Sir Edwin Mendoza'. Sadly, other people on the photo ignored the national anthem and only Mendoza stopped to pay salute.

The mall was crowded with onlookers who, despite of being aware that Lupang Hinirang is playing, ignored the song and continued with their activities. Only this man took the effort to stop walking and respect the national anthem.

As the old saying goes, no good deed goes unnoticed. Netizens praised Mendoza for his patriotic act. Some even concluded that maybe he was a soldier because this kind of patriotism is rarely seen nowadays.

I salute you with full respect. Isa ka sa dapat tularan ng mga kabataan sa ating generation 'cause you teach us what is being a Filipino. God bless you more. Thanks for showing us what we are and who we are. —Lou said in her post.

If you were put on this position, would you do the same thing this man had done? Don't hesitate to share your thoughts with us on the comment's section below!
