Today is the birthday of Jose Rizal, the national hero of the Philippines. I managed to take this photo of Rizal en route to Mt. Banahaw (due south of Metro Manila) while on a trip for PI 100.
According to Dr. Nilo Ocampo (if I can recall correctly) this is one of the few statues of Rizal where he is depicted as a child.
I created this collage to signify the deconstruction of Rizal wherein his literary prowess showed in his controversial poem "Sa aking mga kababata" ("To my fellow youngsters"). The poem is fairly controversial because some are casting doubts on the authenticity of Rizal being the author of this poem.
Anyway, history aside, I wish I worked in the province of Laguna today where they have no work...
Happy Birthday Rizal!
Hope you're proud of what we've become. :)
maglagay ng pagsusuri sa tula ni Rizal na “sa aking mga kababata”. lapatan ito ng teoryang imahismo. at ibigay ang pakahulugan o mensaheng ibig iparating ni Rizal.

You sound like my P.I. 100 teacher… 😀 anyway, I think on studying the poem you will find that indeed Rizal’s destiny was rooted in his childhood. Assuming of course that he in fact wrote the poem. 🙂
