Relevance of Rizal Today
The liberty in our hands, the probability that our country can achieve economic and social prosperousness on its own, and the denomination our motherland had received which is all known in almost around the world. These are the products that a great man entrusted to us, the fruit an unforgettable man had cultivated for the present generation, and the path created by a hero for us to have our own history and to make our own legacy for the future Filipinos. These are the outcome of a person’s deeds and actions which showed us light and hope. He is the great lover who changed our country, our future and definitely each and one of us. He is Jose P. Rizal, our national hero. The significance of studying the life, trials and works of Rizal is not just to memorize or comprehend the book that Zaide, Ocampo or Retana had written. It is more of appreciating his hardships and triumphs as he slowly completed the task God had given to him, that is, to bring reform to our homeland. It is appreciation in a sense that it can awaken the national spirit within every Filipino heart. This is undeniably the main purpose of the government that is why the law Republic Act No. 1425 had been established stating that all colleges and universities shall include “The Life Works and Writings of JOSE RIZAL” in their curriculum. Different people from different time, places and circumstances have different perception about this particular matter. They can view Rizal as a plain national hero. Some might regard him as an inspiration or even a saint. This perspective is relative on how they undergo the study or how they acknowledge Rizal’s exploits. But one thing if for sure, it gives unshakable impact to Filipino students. As a mere student, I reckon Rizal not just an inspiration but also a model. A model that represents the most ideal person a Filipino can be. Why? It is because of his overflowing triumphs and uncountable misfortunes he was able to overcome. I put in mind Rizal’s immortal love to education. Just like him, I want to finish my studies. I will do my best to graduate here in my current school, TIP, as a well prepared person and of course with flying colors. I will never say no to new knowledge and I will definitely never refuse to opportunities which will give me new adventures and experiences. Another is his sensitive heart to help and to give service to others. I, though still a student, want to contribute through being a good citizen and a good follower. I will be successful that I can help my country to be a better lair of future Filipinos in a way where I can impart my knowledge, skills, effort, heart and blood. Unquestionably, Rizal’s doings had changed lot of things in our history and I know it does the same today. The most potent application a person can have in his life is to be a hero, like Jose Mercado Rizal, in his own way. And that is doubtlessly the greatest implementation I will carry out. I will be a hero for both of my family, and my country; courageous, full of dreams, and a true nationalist and reformist. I will be a “hero” whose name is created by his own deeds and success. You, do you want to be a hero?
