Had you ever asked yourself: What does it take to be a Rizal today? I guess, some will answer that they need not to be a hero, as we know who Rizal is. Some will even say that if Jose Rizal was alive today, he will be a blogger.
Now, let us put it this way: Why do college kids needs to study Rizal, even if it is a boring subject? Why do we need to read Noli and El Fili in high school? What is it in Rizal that made him our National Hero? Why Rizal, nor Bonifacio?
I wonder, too. I guess, being an ordinary person can bring out the Rizal in us.
Today is Rizal Day, a holiday. Wala lang.
