Bulacan Cong Silverio honors Jose Rizal
Bulacan 3rd District Representative Lorna Silverio honored the national hero Jose Rizal on Sunday as the country marks his 122nd death anniversary.
“Sa paggunita ng ika-122 taon ng kamatayan ni Gat. Jose Rizal, hindi sapat na kilalanin lamang ang kanyang kadakilaan,” Silverio said wrote on her Facebook page.
“Bagkus, buhayin sa ating mga sarili ang diwa ng PAGMAMAHAL SA BAYAN na ipinakita niya upang tuligsain ang mga manunupil na dayuhan,” she added.
Rizal was executed on Dec. 30, 1896 by the Spanish colonizers for defying colonial rule and asserting independence.
Silverio shared on her Facebook page an image of Rizal that also carried a quote from the national hero that goes, “Kung ang isang tao’y mamamatay, bayaan siyang mamatay sa sarili niyang bayan, para sa kanyang bayan at sa ngalan ng kanyang bayan.”
