Jose Rizal at 150: The Legacies of a Filipino Hero

Jose Rizal, 150 years, 150th, hero ko si Rizal
Dr. Jose Rizal is a great inspiration to the Filipino people especially to the youth because his life, ideas and philosophies serve as our encouragement in taking pride in our country and reaching for our aspirations. He stood up for what he believed in; a value that each and every one of us must have to succeed in this journey called life.

The year 2011 marks the 150th birth anniversary of Dr. Jose Rizal. With the purpose of engraving our national hero's memory, life, works, teachings and writings to today's generation, the whole Filipino nation will commemorate the sesquicentennial birth anniversary of Rizal on June 19, 2011.

As a contribution to this commemorative event, I recorded a short video clip of myself on why Rizal is my hero. You too can be a part of this cause. Share in whatever ways you can on why Rizal is your hero and how his life made an impact to what you are now. Tweet (use hashtag #HeroKoSiRizal and #Rizal150), FB, blog and make your voice heard!
