Jose Rizal

Today commemorates the 122nd anniversary of the execution of Filipino hero Jose Rizal on December 30, 1896.

His voice through his writings Noli Me Tangere and el filibusterismo, as well as other poems, placed him in the crosshairs of the Spanish and affected his life up to his death by execution at the tale end of Spanish rule in the Philippines.

In my mind, his influence as the icon of the Philippine National Movement after his death changed the course of Philippines history.

Here’s to Jose Rizal, a person I admire for his courage to voice his opinion during a tumultuous Colonial period of the Philippines.
