Our National Hero Dr. Jose Rizal


We Salute Our National Hero Dr. Jose Rizal

José Protasio Rizal Mercado y Alonso Realonda (June 19, 1861 – December 30, 1896, Bagumbayan), was a Filipino polymath, nationalist and the most prominent advocate for reforms in the Philippines during the Spanish colonial era. He is considered the Philippines' national hero and the anniversary of Rizal's death is commemorated as a Philippine holiday called Rizal Day. Rizal's 1896 military trial and execution made him a martyr of the Philippine Revolution.

The seventh of eleven children born to a wealthy family in the town of Calamba, Laguna, Rizal attended the Ateneo Municipal de Manila, earning a Bachelor of Arts. He enrolled in Medicine and Philosophy and Letters at the University of Santo Tomas and then traveled alone to Madrid, Spain, where he continued his studies at the Universidad Central de Madrid, earning the degree of Licentiate in Medicine. He attended the University of Paris and earned a second doctorate at the University of Heidelberg. Rizal was a polyglot conversant in at least ten languages.He was a prolific poet, essayist, diarist, correspondent, and novelist whose most famous works were his two novels, Noli me Tangere and El filibusterismo. These are social commentaries on the Philippines that formed the nucleus of literature that inspired dissent among peaceful reformists and spurred the militancy of armed revolutionaries against the Spanish colonial authorities.

As a political figure, Rizal was the founder of La Liga Filipina, a civic organization that subsequently gave birth to the Katipunan led by Andrés Bonifacio and Emilio Aguinaldo. He was a proponent of institutional reforms by peaceful means rather than by violent revolution. The general consensus among Rizal scholars, however, attributed his martyred death as the catalyst that precipitated the Philippine Revolution.

Yes, Jose Rizal has been a great inspiration for all of us Filipinos.

I really wish we will only remember and honor him in our hearts, but also do our best to show our love for our country.

I believe we can do this even through simple ways like voting wisely this coming election 2010.

Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!
Happy New Year!

Maraming salamat sa pagpapaalala sa ating mga kababayan na naging masyadong abala sa paghahanda sa bagong taon.

Salamat sa pagpupugay sa ating pambansang bayani.

Ruph - at sana hindi lang natin sya anaalaa kundi sumunood sa kanyang mga magagandang adhikain para sa bayan.

George - bagamat marami sa atin ang abala sa paghahanda ng bagong taon. pero nais ko rin bigyan ng parangal sa mga kababayan natin na nagsacrifice na naandoon sa kanilang trabaho para pangalagaan ang ating sambayanan. Ang ilan dito ay ang mga pulis, paramedics, bumbero at marami pa. Tunay na sa maliit na paraan ay maituturing natin sila ay mga bayani din! At isa na dito ang kaibigan kong fire brigade volunteer.
