A film that will not just awaken your senses but will leave you with a question.
Background of the study We owe it to ourselves as Filipinos to revisit the writings of Dr. Rizal and try to gain an understanding of his ideals and hope for the Philippines.
Rizal is a great gift of God to us, if we are to see it in a Christian perspective. Rizal may be like a precious gift left unopened in the closet of our lackadaisical minds.
Participating in the events being held this year is a good way to open our hearts and minds to the dreams of Rizal for a progressive and enlightened Filipino nation.
Reading and understanding his works will be another way for us to reach the goal of a truly free and independent Philippines. The step that I have taken, or am about to take, is undoubtedly very risky, and it is unnecessary to say that I have pondered on it a great deal.
I know that everyone is opposed to it but I realize also that no one knows what goes on in my heart. I cannot live knowing that many are suffering unjust persecution because of me; I cannot live seeing my brothers [hermanos] and their large families persecuted like criminals.
I prefer to face death and gladly give my life to free so many innocent persons from this unjust persecution. I know that, at present, the future of my country gravitates in part around me; that with my death, many would rejoice, and that, consequently, many are longing for my end.
But what am I to do? I have duties of conscience above all else; I have moral obligations toward the families who suffer, toward my aged parents whose sights pierce my heart; I know that I alone, even my death, can make them happy by returning them to their country and the tranquility of their home.
My parents are all that I have, but my country has many sons still who can take it to advantage. Moreover, I wish to show those who deny us patriotism that we know how to die for our duty and for our convictions.
If I know that I were the only pillar of Philippine politics and if I were convinced that my country men were going to make use of my services, perhaps I would hesitate to take this step, but there are still others who can take my place, who can take my place to advantage.
Furthermore, there are those who find me superfluous and in no need of my services, thus they reduce me to inaction. I have always loved my poor country and I am sure that I shall love her until my last moment.
Perhaps some people will be unjust to me: Whatever my fate may be, I shall die blessing my country and wishing her the dawn of her redemption. The violation of human rights, the iniquity between the ruling class and the majority of the masses, the medieval practice of the Christian faith, the corruption in the government and its bureaucracy and those controlling economic production are just as bad now, if not worse, more than years after Dr.
