Changing history books and textbooks, and the history of Philippines to name Bonifacio as the First Philippine President would mean so much trouble.. in my humble opinion. We know how Bonifacio's life ended from the hands of another Filipino: Emilio Aguinaldo. And thinking about the reactions of Aguinaldo's great grandchildren in reverting the history would mean never-ending rivalry between these parties.
Besides, I think celebrating his day today is much more important than having his name and picture included in the gallery of Malacanang Palace.. Has anyone notice? Do we celebrate Aguinaldo Day?! ;)
