“We fight so that there may be more justice and more liberty, and for the the sacred rights of man.” – Letter of Jose Rizal to Marcelo H. del Pilar, 1889
We celebrate the life of Dr. Jose P. Rizal, and remember his contribution to the Filipino people. His life and work have brought hope to those in despair, and courage to those living in fear.
Today, we honor his sacrifice as we learn by his example, and emulate his love for our country.
Dr Rizal’s life is testament to the fundamental importance and liberating power of education. His legacy is a continuing reminder that it is the duty of every Filipino to find the courage to always speak truth and unfailingly safeguard the freedom of its people.
Let us stand united in the face of adversities and bravely defend the rights of our fellow Filipinos as we celebrate his memory and legacy.
