hi fellow filipinos here in mylot, i'm just thinking about our national hero (Jose Rizal) and some of our other heroes in their time. On your opinion do you agree that Dr. is our National hero and not Bonifacio or any other heroes like Del PIlar? why, does rizal really prove his worth?

hello, just one thing to ask before i proceed, why have you asked and started this topic? well, as for me now, i would now only consider him as a plain hero of our country. he deserves the honor we are now giving him but not should be as whole. some heroes we have deserve this also. besides, he is not from the group of masses, i mean, hindi siya mahirap, and he has different ideologies whixh are all against the revolution aspect those times. in fact, ayaw pa nga niya un. in addition, what he really wanted that time is not to be totally away from Spain but only to have a political independence. un lng.

Yes, DJ. I totally agree that Jose Rizal should be our national hero. But he should not get all the credits. Andres Bonifacio is equally good but since Jose Rizal is deemed a genius more people want to be identified with him.
