For me, it is just right that Dr. Jose Rizal is our national hero. Even though he did not fight physically, but at least he proved to us that diplomacy can also be a way to attain freedom and/or peace. His writings and works awaken the mind and the heart of many Filipinos way back then to fight for the country’s freedom. For me, Dr. Rizal still. Its just that maybe some think that Rizal did not fought for our country physically but he touches the heart of many Filipinos that time that made them decide to fought for country. His mere influence is enough for him to be a hero.
