It's Philippines' Red Letter Day Today



Today, we Filipinos celebrate the 111th national mourning in honor of Dr. Jose Rizal and other victims of the Philippine outbreak ...But who is Jose Rizal?

Jose' Protacio Mercado Rizal Alonzo y Realonda (his full name) (June 19, 1861 - December 30, 1896) was a Filipino nationalist and the most prominent advocate for reforms in the Philippines during the Spanish colonial era. He is considered a national hero and the anniversary of his death is commemorated as a Philippine holiday called Rizal Day. Rizal's 1896 military trial and execution made him a martyr of the Philippine Revolution.

Furthemore, he is also dubbed as the Philippine national hero.
