The Man behind the matchbox...

I was able to buy a match today  to light up a candle. My youngest son was able to identify him...

Commemorating his death today December 30, 1896. 
An Educator, a Doctor, a Leader, a Writer--- what more could we  look for a hero.
His death showed that Filipinos can stand on his own to gain independence. 
Even his struggle to fight for independence, he was arrested and found guilty and was executed by 
a firing squad in Bagumbayan ( today it's called Luneta where his monument stood).  

" He who does not know how to look back at where he came from will never get to his destination. "

  1. He was very right. There's a lot of people who forget where they came from when they taste wealth and success, that's why, whatever they have don't last forever. Ang hindi lumingon sa pinaggalingan ay hindi makararating sa paroroonan. ang ganda di ba?


I appreciate most if you leave some comments, views and questions below. Thanks!
