Pepe as he was fondly called by his mother has been an inspiration to all Filipinos. His legacy of "bayan muna bago sarili"has been fading. But as we celebrate his birthday, We should not forget his quest for freedom that caused his life. We would have never be like this today if not of Dr. Jose Rizal.
His sacrifice and patriotic act has gained world recognition and as proof of this, monument has been erected in his honor in some parts of the world.
These photos depicts his life, works and writings.
