During the time of our national hero Jose Rizal, our country Philippines is under the Spanish colony. Where, the government is controlled by priest rather than officials like the “governador-heneral” who appointed by the king of the Spain. There are calling the Filipinos “indio” which means that are naughty and ignorance. They are making us fanatic in all their beliefs. They are treating us like a slave. They are abusing their power by forcing us to work even though we are not ready to it and if you will not follow their want they will punished you either imprisonment or killed this is called a military service. The children are also force to work in order to pay taxes. The good thing about the Filipinos during Jose Rizal time is that there was unity among them. They fight for are freedom. Jose Rizal was also fight back but not on the way of weapon or guns, he fights by the way of pen. He wrote the two famous novels which is the “Nole Me Tangere” and “El Filibusterismo”. These two novels help our country to realize what is happening to our country Philippines. He inspires us to revolutionize against the Spaniards.

For me, I am proud that our ancestry fought back in order to get our freedom and I’m also amaze for the Filipinos who help the revolutionary group to become successful most especially the women. Ancestry and Family of Rizal
