Happy 150th, Gat Jose Rizal!

How did you love us?
Let me count the ways.

You have taught us to channel the strength
of our youth to stand and make a difference.

You have freed our minds,
with your pen as your weapon.

  You have inspired us with your life and your works;
your nationalism and your passion for this country.

May your legacy live forever,
Dr. Jose Protacio Mercado Rizal y Alonzo Realonda.
