Dr. Jose Rizal, the greatest hero of theMalayan race, has plated the sweetest dream of his oppressedpeople, that is, freedom. As the beneficiaries, like the dinersperhaps, we continue to taste the delicious fruits of his labors as
we enjoy our freedom. While Rizal‟s realized dream is seen as
your favorite food, the steps of preparing the latter are reflectedby his hardships. Indeed, we have always been aware of hisexperiences, his miseries, his triumphs. However, we are notwell versed of the ingredients necessary for the preparation of such.The ingredients of your favorite food are embodied by thevalues and virtues that Rizal has learned throughout hismeaningful journey here on Earth.

Advent of a National Hero
aith in God
This exemplifies one’s belief and trust in God.
“It was a Wednesday and my coming out in this vale of 
tears would have cost my mother her life had she not vowed to the virgin of Antipolo to take me to her sanctuary by way of pilgrimage.
 Despite various beliefs in deities, the growing number of sects in our society which manifests religion differences, onething is sure
that we all hold faith in someone we believe in.For Christians, like Rizal, we adhere to the words and life of Jesus Christ. The citation above shows how intense the Rizal
family‟s faith in God is. If 
Doña Teodora
(Rizal‟s mother), did not
have faith in God, she would not have been able to give birth toRizal who had an unusual big head. It seemed impossible for her to take a normal delivery. Fortunately, through her belief inthe Immaculate Virgin of Antipolo entwined with her promise
that she would do a pilgrimage on Rizal‟s 7
birthday, she gavebirth to a healthy boy without compromising her own condition.
