Speech national anthem
Firstly, in the Philippines the national anthem mostly represents peace and tells people not to fight. When I heard our national anthem in the Philippines I felt that I needed to respect my parents and not fight with my cousins and have mercy on other people. Our national anthem in English means “Our country is one about bravery and courage for freedom and joy in our land of mountains and sea, blue skies and shining sun”.
Secondly, because you are part of that country you need to sing the national anthem. Because I moved to New zealand I need to sing the New Zealand national anthem too, like others.
Thirdly in the Olympic Games they sing the national anthem, because if you sing the national anthem in Olympic Games it means you are voting and supporting your country. Some of the people always sing the national anthem because they care about their country.
Lastly, singing the national anthem makes people feel like they belong to that country. When I moved here I felt that I belonged here just like other people in New Zealand. I sing the anthem but i’m still practising it.
