Rizal Reflection

Ezekiel S. Gonzales 3Bio-6 Living Life A different kind of experience and variety of feelings that I felt during the field trip was evident. Though the field trip was quite simple it was outstanding because the main reason for the trip was to learn more about our national hero, Jose Rizal. As a result, my reflection is mostly composed of what has become my perception of Dr. Jose Rizal as a normal person like us and as one of the most respected person in our country. The first thing I noticed in Dr.

Jose Rizal’s life was that he lived a simple one. He did not choose to have a luxurious life like most of us wanted. Even before he became under surveillance by the Spaniards, he had lived his life as simple as possible. I think it was the work of his parents that made him lived like this. I strongly believe that one’s lifestyle is influenced mostly by their parents. I learned from the life of Rizal the importance of taking part of the parents to their children’s morals.

The second lesson I learned from the life of Rizal during the field trip was his calmness and ability to think rationally even in the most complicated circumstances. In the museum at the Intramuros, I found out many of his works in life. His works were incredible to the fact that it was a bit difficult for him to work during his time because of the Spanish regime. This made me conclude that he really had the skill to be composed even in the hardest situation like when he was about to be killed. The last thing I noticed about Rizal’s life is that he lived his life to the fullest.

He may had died early because of the Spaniards but he did have a good life from his childhood up until his death. Today, many of us lost the hope of living because of numerous complications we encounter in life. What we forget most of the time is that we are human beings and it is normal to encounter such problems that can hinder our happiness. Rizal is the best example for me for living life without any hesitations and it is one of my realizations that we should just go on with our life whatever our condition may become.
