A Short Reflection for the Movie “Rizal”
The movie that i watched gave me a mixed feelings of patriotism and despair. Rizal was a stoic person coming from humble roots that was imparted by his parents. He was a very amazing person at his time.
He was humble, fighting for reforms through his writings instead of through a revolution. He used his intelligence, talents and skills in a for more peaceful way.
First of all, we should clarify the meaning if a hero to make it quite simple to understand how Rizal became a hero. A hero symbolizes goodness. Jose Rizal became the National hero because he fought from freedom in a silent but powerful way. He expressed his love for the Philippines through his novels, essays, articles and poems rather than a force of aggression.
In the movie, he didn’t really want to fight the spaniards, and he wished for a more peaceful way for the Philippines and Spain to coexist with each other.
Jose Rizal became a national hero of the Philippines as a reformist who advocated peacefully for liberty rather than violent means. He was forerunner of Gandhi and along with Sum Yat Sen and Tagone, the thought climate will change throughout Asia. His work and the work of others led to the attrition of colonialism.
No single person or organization can be held responsible for making Dr. Jose Rizal our national hero. Rizal himself, his own people, and the foreigners all together contributed to make him the greatest hero and martyr of his people. This is because; Dr. Jose Rizal didn’t become our National Hero by way of traditional election.
The fruits of his exceptional dedication and conviction to his life’s purpose are seen in our everyday lives. If he hadn’t, and among other note-worthy heroes of our history fought for our well-deserved freedom, maybe we’ll still be in the hands of our unjust captors. His “excellent qualities and merits” made him Our Foremost National Hero.
The progressive school movement deconstructed the taken-for-gratnted idea that the school is an enclave where the student learns first and then later, after graduation gets a job and hopefully, becomes a productive member of the community.
Against this notion, it advocated and practiced the principle that the school is an integral working and promoting the well-being of the community all at the same time. Rizal’s school in Talisay may be viewed as one such “educational web”.
All in all, i recommend that they would let students to watch Rizal’s movie in order for them to have a realization and for them to garner Rizal’s traits. We are the future of the Philippines, and we should strive more to be like him.
