“I die without seeing the dawn brighten over my native land! You, who have it to see, welcome it — and forget not those who have fallen during the night!” – Elias Dr. Jose Rizal, the national hero, one who sacrifices his life to his mother land, a man who always fights for the right and a Filipino who has a strong personality and brave enough to stood up and light the torch in our hearts. He wrote lots of poems, novels, articles that inspired us. Like the Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo, and I must say that it has a great effect in each of us especially during the time that he published these novels. Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo, novels that he published, the reason why he wrote it is because he wants to wake up the mind of each Filipino who had been blinded about the Spanish Government. He was inspired and motivated to write those novels and that motivation and inspiration was us and his whole nation. I must say that when he wrote these novels, it surely affects all of the Filipino during his era. And because of how it affects the Filipinos in that time we can say that he successfully had done his intention on writing this novel. Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo have been taught to us since our high schoolyear, and we are all aware that it is the greatest and most unforgettable works of Dr. Jose Rizal. And admit it, we get bored when we usually hear our teachers discussing it but in the end we found it interesting when we read and learn to appreciate the real meaning and reason why he wrote it. I admired these both novels because here we can see the imbalance and injustice during his time. These novels tells us about the story of Ibarra that also turns to be Simoun in the second novel, a bright man who want to build up a school in his hometown so that what he dreams about the Philippines, being an educated country will come true.
