Jose Rizal statue in Zamboanga City

Not only the streets in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao were named “Rizal”, to give tribute to the national hero, but one can also notice a statue of him in the plaza, government offices, schools, village, in almost every town and cities in the country. Rizal has become a symbolic hero of the present.
Meanwhile, I’m still in Zamboanga City and the members of the Philippine Military deployed here including the Marines that are on their way to provide security are truly the present heroes. The anniversary of last year’s seige is coming up, the reason why it’s on everyone’s mind including the memories of fear.
