Guam - In celebration of the island's 69th Liberation Day, Governor Eddie Calvo wants you to hear your story. From what liberation means to you to what lessons about liberation, war and forgiveness you may have learned from your elders.
Deputy press secretary Phil Leon Guerrero says Liberation Day is one if not the most important holiday for the people of Guam. "It's an event we alone experienced, it's reflection of a time that is unimaginable in this day and age and so we think it's important for people to reflect on the true meaning of liberation day and to share their stories with everyone on Guam through social media, through Facebook and everyone around the world," he said.
To enter the contest, just go to the Governor Eddie Baza Calvo's Facebook page, like it and either post a video or essay. Videos should be no more than two minutes and essays should between 150 and 350 words. Entries are due by Thursday at 6am. You can also drop off your entries at the Governor's Office. The winner will receive a prime spot on the Liberation Day Parade route near the grandstand and be announced this Friday.
