TH SENTENCE O RIZAL TO EXILE IN DAPITAN

“Difficulties are not the reasons to give up but an inspiration to move on.” This dictum I think was on the mind of Dr. Jose P. Rizal when he was in Dapitan. He never gave up serving our country’s cause, even though the Spanish tried to deteriorate his life by threatening
Jose Rizal, a man with so many accomplishments. Jose Rizal gives all of us inspiration in all the things we do. He is inspires us to be hardworking and diligent, which most of us are not. I am amazed that even though Rizal was in exile, he didn’t mind the fact that he was sent to Dapitan to live like a prisoner and yet he still manages to ...view middle of the document...

Furthermore, he taught his students arnis, wrestling, boxing and swimming without tuition fees.

Rizal also gave medical assistance and free medicines to the poor person which was a very sincere action. He also operated his mother’s right eye in Dapitan.

One thing that I adored when he was in Dapitan was his community projects which consisted of
water system and lighting system where the life of the people became easier.
The part of Rizal's life where he came to know Josephine is the most romantic. Their love story was an example of unconditional love because despite of the fact that there were no priest who was willing to marry the them, the couple exchanged their vows before God in their own way. Their love bear its fruit - Josephine was pregnant. Unfortunately, Josephine gave birth to a one-month premature baby boy who lived only for three hours. The child was buried in Dapitan, bearing the name Francisco, after Rizal's father. 
I got mad with Jose Rizal in the event of Josephines premature birth of the supposedly son of a hero. How come Rizal who was a doctor was so unmindful of Josephine's condition that night when his anger bursted after Maria's accusation of Josephine being a spy? Not only physically but mentally and emotionally, Josephine who was then pregnant was tortured of Rizal's misbehavior which caused her to collapse and ultimately lose the baby in her womb. 

I can imagine how Rizal's life would be more colorful and interesting if he had a son who lived and continued his good doings. It is really disappointing that losing that baby ends Rizal's direct lineage. If he was not a hero, he would have been long forgotten because his direct ancestry ended when he was killed. 
However, I believe without a doubt that he really deserves to be our national hero in every man's point of view. People in Dapitan looked up to him, adored and respected him.
