    Message of VP Leni Robredo on the Commemoration Day of Dr. Jose Rizal’s Heroism

    Message of VP Leni Robredo on the Commemoration Day of Dr. Jose Rizal’s Heroism

    [English Version]

    I am one with the Filipino people in commemorating the life and sacrifice of our national hero.

    We are called today to live out the true meaning of being a Filipino, as heralded and written by Rizal: Filipinos who are united, who share in communal responsibility, and who always draw strength from one another; Filipinos who always hold on to hope, because they respond with compassion to the needs of their countrymen. May we all be reminded of Elias’s final words in Noli Me Tangere, to always welcome the dawn without ever forgetting those who suffered in the dark of night.

    It is in this way that we truly honor the heroism of Dr. Jose Rizal. Once again, I and the entire Office of the Vice President join you in celebration and remembrance.
