Jose Rizal

our national hero, was born in Calamba, Laguna. His parents were
Francisco Mercado Rizal and Teodora Alonso. He was educated in Europe
and obtained his license in opthamology and philiosphy in France. He
wrote Noli Me Tangere (Touch Me Not) and El Filibusterismo (The Rebel) in
Europe, which told about the oppression of Spanish colonial rule. In 1892,
when Rizal returned to the Philippines, he formed La Liga Filipina, a forum
for Filipinos to express their hopes for reform and freedom from the
oppressive Spanish colonial administration. He was arrested as a
revolutionary and was exiled in Dapitan, Mindanao. His writings and La
Liga Filipina were banned. Later, he was imprisoned in Fort Santiago,
Manila after a trial. On December 30, 1896, he was executed by a firing
squad at Bagumbayan, now known as Luneta, in Manila for spreading
ideals of revolution.
Ferdinand Marcos
Infrastructure development is one of the achievements of Marcos Administration, infrastructures
that were unprecedented in the history of our country. These are Cultural Center of the
Philippines, Folk Arts Theatre, Philippine International Convention Center, Makiling Center for
the Arts (National Arts Center), Malacaang ti Amianan in Laoag, Nayong Pilipino, Museum for
Native Art in Tacloban, and Palace in the Sky. These projects provided venue for the Filipinos to
highlight cultural heritage, propagate arts and culture, and generate tourism.

Also, during Marcos time, great concern on public health was exhibited. Specialty hospitals like
the Philippine Heart Center, Lung Center, Kidney Institute, and Philippine Children Hospital.
These hospitals opened access to the nations best doctors. Unfortunately, it is more than three
decades now after his term but there is no specialty hospital has been built.

More road networks and bridges were constructed during his time. Our first modern Toll-way, the
Manila North Diversion Road, precursor of the North Luzon Expressway (Nlex), the Marcos
Highway to Baguio increased the Citys income, and the San Juanico Bridge that links the
islands of Samar and Leyte were constructed through his spectacular civil-works program.

These infrastructure are just diminutive compared to the holistic scheme -increasing GNP,
literacy and life expectancy, he designed to attain development fully.

Although Marcos was branded as dictator, corrupt, human rights violator by fictional tales
passed on from generation to generation and his achievements were expunged subtly by the
manipulation of mass media and vindictiveness of the administration that succeeded him, the
impacts of his interventions remained and are undeniably germane part of our countrys system.

He is the founder the Katipunan, a secret organization aimed to overthrow
Spanish sovereignty in the Philippines. Its full name was Kataastaasan

the Spaniards. On August 23, 1896, Bonifacio assembled his men at

However, a conflict of leadership developed between he and Emilio
Aguinaldo, who was leading the struggle in his home province of Cavite.
After this power struggle, on May 10, 1897, Bonifacio was shot and killed in
