He has always been one of my favorite historical figures—one of the least appreciated heroes of the revolution.
While he didn’t fight on the front lines of battle, he was right in the thick of it all. Providing leadership during the most difficult times. Having to be carried between towns so as not to be captured.
Through his story, we can find a link between our past and our present. The mistakes we Filipinos repeat and our detrimental attitudes. You can tell just by reading his writings that what he had faced in his life still plagues our country today.
