As we commemorate the 126th celebration of Philippine Independence, we also remember the contribution of 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐟. 𝐆𝐚𝐛𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐥 𝐅. 𝐅𝐚𝐛𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐚, known as the “𝙁𝙖𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙤𝙛 𝙅𝙪𝙣𝙚 12 𝙋𝙝𝙞𝙡𝙞𝙥𝙥𝙞𝙣𝙚 𝙄𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙥𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚 𝘿𝙖𝙮.” He fathered the idea of proclaiming June 12 as Independence Day and through RA No. 4166 signed by former President Diosdado D. Macapagal, this important celebration changed the date from July 4 to June 12.
