PINOY PRIDE - 150 YEARS OF JOSE RIZAL

I am thankful that I can enjoy a one more day vacation from work because it was declared to be a special non working holiday on Monday.To commemorate the 150 years of Gat.Jose Rizal, since the time of his death.Rizal's contributions to the country's freedom is unforgettable .His books was provoking and exploiting the deeds of the foreign invaders in our land. Making the Katipunero's  to firmly stand for their rights and freedom and revolt against the oppressors.

The book ,Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo are the two famous  work of him that wakes the heart of many Filipino.Reading those  was as if you were also present on the time those scenes took place, It gives me different feelings towards different characters in the story. It makes me conclude of the passionate, the flame our ancestors have to defend and fight for our country.I don't know how other Filipino feel about their  homeland , but as for me , I am proud to be Pinoy.
