Happy Birthday, Jose Rizal

Today, we honor a great man and remember his martyrdom for freedom. Jose Rizal did not inspire a people to seek their nationhood by his military prowess, not even by an anger against foreign masters. But his quiet determination to speak of the longing for freedom of his people, even confronted with death, sparked the fire in their hearts.

And the Filipino discovered the power of the people.
