    It is important for all Filipinos to know our National Hero, Dr Jose Rizal. It is sad that most students these days don't know anything about the Philippine heroes which include not only Dr Jose Rizal, but also Andres Bonifacio, Apolinario Mabini, Gregorio del Pilar, Diego and Gabriela Silang, Marcelo H. Del Pilar, Antonio Luna and Juan Luna.

    It is important for us to know who planted in the minds of Filipino people through his writings the idea of seeking independence from the colonial masters. The foremost of these writings are the two novels "Noli Me Tangere" (Touch Me Not, also known as The Social Cancer) and "El Filibusterismo" (Reign of Greed) that instigated the revolution . The unrest was further aggravated by the death of the hero by musketry at the Rizal Park.

    It is noteworthy to study these two books well, as due perhaps to his nearing martyrdom without seeing the freedom of his Motherland, the conflict in Rizal's mind was manifested on the creation of another character in the person of Simoun, who contrary to the chracter shown by Ibarra, the pacifist in Noli turns up in El Fili as the rich guy pretending to side with the rich but is in fact siding and urging the Filipinos to revolt.

    The teaching of these two novels were not really encouraged by ???? educators / school owners (mostly catholic schools) even up to the present as they want Filipinos to follow the example of pacifist Rizal, not the rebellious Simoun, not the Bonifacio, not the del Pilar. They want Filipinos to remain submissive, malleable and acquiescent.

    If you're not a Filipino, Jose Rizal is the national hero of the philippines. If you are a filipino, you should know that by now and the importance of knowing ones culture as well as the long struggle of our ancestors to give us a free nation.
    He wanted a bloodless revolution for independent Philippines. He's a poet, a revolutionary, a martyr. Because of him, other filipinos fought for independence. He is a very important figure in the filipino history.

    Rizal is our NATIONAL HERO, and to be chosen as a national hero must mean something, don't you think? He has lived a life that is an inspiration to your countrymen, he has shown surpassing patriotism, all our heroes have. But just like Ninoy Aquino, as I see it, who had the means to leave a tumultuous place, given the chance to walk away, they didn't, they came back to fight for us even if they knew it would cost their life. That's the gist of your Rizal subject, to teach you of your roots and how to value it. "ang hindi magmahal sa sariling wika ay higit pa sa malansang isda", always remember that, it's so true to this date. If you don't love yourself for who you are, then who would?
