This is a memorial to the island’s national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal, which is located in the heart of Manila. It is a fitting monument to a champion who fought for the rights and freedom of the Filipino. He did not promulgate a bloody revolution, but used his intellect and writing skills to feed the passion of other freedom fighters to stand for what they believed in to be the Filipino’s moral birthright. Thus, Rizal’s battle cry echoed in history as the turning point of our liberty from foreign colonization towards the freedom we take pleasure in until today.
