To wake up our senses, allow ‘s travel back to the 1 who was declared as the Philippines ‘ National hero, who is shortly called as Dr. Jose P. Rizal. Who has the existent name of Dr. Jose Protacio Mercado Rizal Alonzo Y Realonda. Undeniably, Rizal was known because of differentiation of holding a great intelligence. And through his Hagiographas, he used this for our state Philippines to acquire rid of indefensible intervention of the Spanish authorities and the Friars, to the Filipino people. Rizal has decided to travel through his plants for our state ‘s freedom.
Get downing with Dr. Jose Rizal ‘s childhood yearss with his happy and large household, he is good nurtured. His parents, Don Francisco Mercado Rizal and Dona Teodora Realonda Alonzo, his siblings, Saturnina, Paciano, Narcisa, Olympia, Lucia, Maria, Concepcion, Josefa, Trinidad and Soledad.
During his childhood yearss, his pet name was “ Pepe. ” Dona Teodora was his first instructor, who was besides intelligent, widely-known with different linguistic communications. She taught Pepe on how to talk Spanish. Though talking Spanish is non that easy to be learned, Pepe was so eager to larn and was besides divine with her loving female parent, which was later applied with his school owned and handled by Spanish Friars. Pepe ‘s favourite narrative that he heard from his female parent was “ Ang Gamugamo, ” which inspired him more. While Don Francisco has died in the gaol.
In the twelvemonth 1872, he entered Ateneo Municipal, which was known as school for male childs. While analyzing at that place, Pepe can non deny the fact of denigration of his schoolmates to him. Because Pepe was dark and little, he had received bad intervention in his times. But despite of this, Pepe strive for more and for better, until he has finished analyzing in Ateneo Municipal. Pepe studied following in University of Santo Tomas, in 1878, as a medical pupil. Because it was leaded by Franciscan Friars, there is besides a favoritism of Filipino medical pupils. But Pepe as a wise and patriotic does non take their abuses but ramping the Filipinos that are besides equal with the Spaniards. Pepe and his co-student ( Filipinos ) who studied there built a group named “ Kompanyerismo. ” Through their Hagiographas, they will show their feelings and province their rights as pupils besides. The “ Kastila ” pupils name them “ Indio chonggo, ” while they call the Kastila ‘s “ Kastila Bangus. ” Their instructors are non holding the right intervention in them. They hold other setups that they will utilize to analyze as a medical pupil. Pepe maintained high classs during his first twelvemonth in college, but because of his different fortunes in life, he became satisfied with a class which is non similar earlier.
During his early college yearss, Dona Teodora was accused that she poisoned her sister-in-law. The Franciscan Friars has long term hatred with the Mercado household that ‘s why they are ever happening a hole merely to set them down. The ground behind their hatred is that, the Mercado household does n’t desire to sell their land to them. Dona Teodora was 2 old ages in prison because of that accusal. That go oning truly affects Rizal, and his surveies. He is believing of the state of affairs of his female parent, because of his female parent ‘s old age.
After Rizal had studied medical specialty, he operated his female parent ‘s left oculus in able to see.
Rizal “ Pepe ” believe that instruction is the lone key for the Filipinos to stand out from low position in life and to demo to Spaniards that we, Filipinos do n’t necessitate to be conquered by brutal and selfish administration of them.
Rizal hoped for the Philippines, his “ Fatherland ‘s ” freedom from the custodies of Spaniards. That ‘s why he studied more in the different states. He wrote 2 novels, foremost was the “ Noli Me Tangere ” and second was the “ El Filibusterismo. ”
In his Noli, he was inspired to compose it because of “ Uncle Tom ‘s Cabin ” of Beecher Stowe. He finished his novel on the 21st twenty-four hours of February, 1887. He involved his ego in his authorship in the character of Crisostomo Ibarra. Who sees the kingdom of Spanish administration over the Filipino people. While composing this novel, Rizal had a difficult clip particularly when he ‘s traveling to publish this in the imperativeness because of non holding plenty fund. Thankss to Maximo Viola, his friend, who saved and took the duty to pay for its printing.
While composing this novel, in Paris, there is a clip that he be given to set it on fire after he had merely read the missive of his brother Paciano, stating the farther distraction that the Spaniards made in the Filipinos and in their ain land. Their household in Calamba was sent by those Spaniards to travel off from their place. By that clip, Dona Teodora was really old. Even the kids, their sisters and brothers, and both their parents were sent off pitifully. But so, Rizal realized that he needs it more to give justness and to open up the heads of every Filipino people that they do n’t merit to populate like slaves. He read and reminisced the love of Maria Clara to him.
Crisostomo Ibarra in his novel was non successful in seting down the Spaniards. Tiale, his friend made him realized non to go egoistic, because Rizal ‘s mentality was he will neglect, non believing of the hereafter of Filipino people.
On the twenty-four hours before Rizal was put to decease, he had changed the stoping of his Noli, Crisostomo Ibarra was successful in his programs, non running from the face of his job and from the face of decease. Now, Rizal had free his head from concerns, accepted what will go on to him on the following twenty-four hours, thought of the freedom of the Filipinos from the danger that the Spaniards brought.
On his last twenty-four hours, he requested to his female parent to bury him with a cross on top of his grave, with his day of the month of birth and the day of the month of his decease. He hugged his female parent and sister tightly for his adieu. Before they shoot him, he requested if it ‘s all right to hit him confronting them, but the guard said that it can non be. Then Rizal requested once more, that they must hit him in the caput, and the guard agreed.
Before the act of hiting him, his last words was “ It is done! ” .. With the act of confronting the people after they had shoot him.
After that, “ KKK ” leaded by Andres Bonifacio, they attacked the Spanish military personnels, and they overcome success!
At last, the hope of Dr. Jose Rizal, was non merely take to nil, it was so achieved. Even in his last breath, he ‘s believing for the better hereafter of the Filipino people.
