Rizal at 150!

It’s amazing how time flies isn’t it?
The Calamba native, considered as the greatest Filipino hero of all, will be celebrating his 150th birthday.
Actually, we’ll be the ones commemorating since his long been gone.
Aside from his career as a writer for the “propaganda” we seem to have forgotten his other side. He had many sides – we gloss over his other talents.
Rizal today is the face that people have imprinted on their shirt like that of Che Guevara.
Do they even know what he stood for?
There so much we can learn from this guy.
That’s if we can go beyond the demified Rizal model we’ve been taught to imitate.
