To see how our MODERN E-Learning Reviewers work, please try this 5-item sample:
 
JOSÉ Protasio RIZAL Mercado y Alonso Realonda (June 19, 1861 – December 30, 1896)
He was a Filipino nationalist and reformist and the most prominent advocate for reform in the Philippines during the Spanish colonial era. He was the inspiration and thus wrongly implicated as the leader of the Katipunan Revolution, and that led to his execution on December 30, 1896, now celebrated as Rizal Day.
          As a political figure, José Rizal was the founder of La Liga Filipina, a civic organization that subsequently gave birth to the Katipunan.He was a proponent of achieving Philippine self-government peacefully through institutional reform rather than through violent revolution, and would only support "violent means" as a last resort. (Wikipedia)
 
ANDRÉS BONIFACIO y de Castro (30 November 1863 – 10 May 1897)
He was a Filipino nationalist and revolutionary. He is often called "the father of the Philippine Revolution". Bonifacio was a founder and later Supremo ("supreme leader") of the Katipunan movement which sought the independence of the Philippines from Spanish colonial rule and started the Philippine Revolution. He is considered a de facto national hero of the Philippines, and is also considered by some Filipino historians to be the first President, but he is not officially recognized as such. (Wikipedia)
 
EMILIO AGUINALDO y Famy (22 March 1869 – 6 February 1964)
He was a Filipino general, politician, and independence leader. He had an instrumental role during the Philippines' revolution against Spain, and the subsequent Philippine–American War or War of Philippine Independence that resisted American occupation.
          Aguinaldo became the Philippines' first president. He was also the youngest (at age 28) to have become the country's president, the longest-lived former president (having survived to age 94) and the president to have outlived the most number of successors. (Wikipedia)

In my opinion, Jose Rizal deserves to be our National Hero. Because he had the greatest contribution to our country, and because of him, freedom was granted to us Filipinos.

Eto ay sagot sa tanong ni Marj Sibal, I choose Rizal. The reason why I didn't choose Bonifacio because he was the one who caused trouble with Rizal's name, though he is also very eager to free the Philippines from the Spaniards. Emilio Aguinaldo, on the other hand, was the one who had Bonifacio killed (?), well that's what I remembered, it was also Aguinaldo who made Rizal's death something to remember. Rizal because of his passion in writing, his patriotism, and his efforts of fighting the spanish state through non-violent actions is very significant.

i choose Spiderman(Rizal) why first - he used pen rather than qun in fiqhtinq spaniards? Not usinq violence but novels and media to achieve National freedom is very Heroic(for me) second - he is smart, very smart LoL

ang mas bigating bayani ay ang nakipaglaban para sa kalayaan ng hindi kinailangang isakripisyo ang mga buhay ng marami niyang kababayan..ang bawat digmaan ay kailangang pamunuan ng pinaka mautak sa lahat,,hindi maaring puro pisikal na lakas ang gamitin,,kailangang tamang istratehiya ang pag isipan upang maiwasan ang sakitan o pagkawala ng maraming buhay na maaring nakatulong rin sa lalong pag unlad ng ating bayan,ngunit ito'y nakalipas na..lahat sila ay nakatulong sa pagkamit ng kalayaan na ating tinatamasa sa kasalukuyan..mabuhay!

maybe I should choose Superman, based in his abilities as a hero or as superman his self he is capable of doing everything that Spiderman and Iron man can do, only he's weakness is Kryptonite.. in Philippine history choose Bonifacio because without his contribution wala naman magagawa ang mga sulat ni rizal.. the point is kung hindi nag move si bonifacio forKKK mawawalan din ng saysay yung mg sinulat ni rizal kasi nga diba si aguinaldo hindi nakipaglaban kasi sa lack of arms..kaya si bonifacio talaga ang pipiliin ko beacuse of his braveness to sacrifice his life for Filipinos

Si rizal dahil sya ang nagmulat sa mga pilipino kung ano ang tunay na kalagayan natin sa kamay ng mga mananakop.

Jose Rizal should truly be our national hero for he might not join the revolution, but he is a big part of it. He has the valor to dry for his own country for he believed that the Philippines will one day be the land he dreamed of.

naniniwala ako na si Jose Rizal ay may pinakamalaking naiambag sa paglaya ng Pilipinas dahil sa tapang na ipinakita niya gamit ang matalinong pagsusulat. nakipaglaban siya sa pamamagitan ng diplomasya.

For Julius Brian's question. Emilio Aguinaldo, because he achieved our independence from Spain and he was elected as the first president of our new republic under the Malolos Congress. He also led the Philippine-American War against U.S. resistance for the Philippine independence. And compare to the two heroes which is Rizal and Bonifacio, Aguinaldo made more contributions..

Ayon sa artikulong, Who should be 'the' Philippine National Hero?, sa inyong palagay, sino ba talaga ang karapat-dapat na maging pambansang bayani ng Pilipinas?

Why We need to compare this three persons???

ang sagot ko sa walang kwenta mong tanong ay sempwe cguro dahil meron clang ibat ibang ginwa kaya nakalaya tayo ..

Siguro pre kasi pare parehas silang kilala na parang nailigas nila ang ating bansa.

Pare para sakin dapat hindi nmn sila tato dapat jan iisa lng kc c Rizal lang ang nag ligatas sa ating bayan hahaha db??

I agree,because dr.Jose Rizal is the One natinal hero, and Dr. Jose Rizal is the founder of La Liga Filipina.

If I chooses If Who Become Eligible Philippine National Hero. He was Dr.. Jose Rizal because he fought during the Spanish without using any force.

For me Jose Protacio Rizal Mercado Alonzo Y Realanda the national hero in our country its because by using his nobel Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo is Fact That All Filipinos Who read his Nobels blamed Their Heart not Only in thereselves and For The Lovely COuntry

for me still Dr.Jose Rizal, because he has what it takes to be a true hero of this country and before you called a hero you should have the features that a true hero people looking for. Just what Dr. Jose Rizal did ,rather than imitate others to use violence or force, he choose the peaceful and orderly way to enlighten the heart of his countrymen .So for me Dr Jose Protacio Rizal Mercado y. Alonso Realonda is our National HERO!!!!

sa tingin niyo po ba cnu ba talaga ang karapat dapat ituring ng mga pilipino bilang bayani ng ating bansa ????

DR. JOSE RIZAL

JOSE RIZAL dahil ginamit niya ang pasulat ng Noli Me Tangere at El Filibusterismo para maipagtanggol ang ating bayan,at siya rin ang namumuno sa samahang la liga Filipina upang makiisa.

if you give a change to change our hero who is he?why?

It's no doubt that Dr. Jose Rizal should be our national hero. He was the only man in our history that didn't use any form of violence to fight for our freedom. He doesn't also have any personal agendas in doing this heroic acts, he only think whats good for his fellowmen.

This is in reaction to the comment of Jorwill David.Agree po ako na si Dr. Jose Rizal ang ating national hero kasi po puro yung ikabubuti lng po talaga ng mga pilipino yung inisip nya nung ipinaglaban nya tayo mula sa mga kastila tsaka wla po syang pansariling mithiin, ito po ang ibig sabihin ng bayani.

This is in reaction to the comment of Jorwill David.Agree ako kay Dr. Rizal n mging pambansang bayani natin tsaka hindi na natin dpat palitan pa to kasi sya na talaga pambansang bayani natin noon pa.

This is in reaction to the comment of Jorwill David.Si Dr. Jose Rizal kasi hindi nya inisip yung kapanan hindi tulad ni Andres Bonifacio tsaka Emilio Aguinaldo na may mga hidden agenda noon.

It's no doubt that Dr. Jose Rizal should be our national hero. He was the only one who didn't use any violence in fighting for our freedom and he doesn't have any agendas in doing this heroic acts. Do you agree that Dr. Jose Rizal should really be our National Hero? Why?

<p> i dont see the point why we should consider a hero as per his strength</p>

for me , Jose RIzal is our national hero because we all know that he is the one who sacrifice to save our country .. and many people know that he is our national hero and know one can change that ..

Although Dr. Jose Rizal is our national hero ever since, there are still some people questioning that maybe Emilio Aguinaldo or Andres Bonifacio will fit better with this title. Do you agree that Dr. Jose Rizal should really be our National Hero? Why?

i think jose rizal will be the fittest hero

jose rizal because he sacrifice his self for our freedom

i agree with her because Dr. Jose Rizal sacrifice save our country ..

i agree with her because Dr. Jose Rizal makes our life comfortable ..

if e were choose the only one the national hero who is the best fitting to be regulated as the philippine national hero who shuld it be amongn the folowing ? shuld it be.. choose one and why? JOSE P.RIZAL ANDRES BONOFACIO EMILIO AGUINALDO

Humanity has really been blinded by history I believe... I stand with our national hero deserves the title that he has earned. As what Rizal has quoted "A PEN is MIGHTIER than a SWORD" which shows to be evident even to our society this days (technically social media is a living legacy of this quote even though it wasnt literally a product or by written of a pen). The said two heroes on the choices where even influenced by rizal's Literary which makes them a follower of RIZAL's ORIGINAL FOOT STEPS AND TRACKS. Andres Bonifacio is an avid reader of Rizals Noli and El fili, In the other hand Emilio went his head high with Rizal's Reforms and Art of Open Culture that he has adopted from the masonry is Spain. The world would be a better place if people tend to drop their guns and weapons, drop their EGOS , PRIDES and CRAVING FOR POWER, and keep an open mind and heart. Rizal has stand for peace, constant improvement and change and as well as culture diversity and philosophy which makes him a role model not only from the people of the past but UP UNTIL TODAYS GENERATION. We can never halt change or culture fusion (some name it neo-colonialism, but the point of colonialism doesnt matter anyway) time will come and all humanity will tend to believe and respect each others voices and opinions but that doesnt stop us for establishing and proofing who we are right now. We just need to keep everything at settlement and peace and everything will go to its place. This is what RIZAL BELIEVES IN; HE BELIEVES IN EQUALITY not with REBELLION neither with OVER POWERING A SPECIFIC RACE, COUNTRY SPECIALLY A FELLOW MEN (which the 2 choice have done in their past, HISTORY WISE). I find it wise to stay with our grounds as people of smiles and peace and hospitality and this is what RIZAL has STAND FOR AS WELL. Mabuhay ang Pilipinas! Go for our NATIONAL HERO! GO RIZAL!

Dr. Jose Rizal, He advocated peaceful reforms in the Philippines. He used his intelligence to conquer the injustices and corruption in his native land. It was his patriotism, optimism and undying love for his country and his belief in his countrymen. He believed not merely in freedom but in the potential of the Filipino people to surpass what they were under the Spanish colonial government and for that he was earned his right place as a symbol of what a Filipino can do in one short lifetime.

Ang mas karapat-dapat na maging bayani ng mga pilipino ay dapat si jose rizal dahil mag-isa nyang hinarap ang nmga espanyol para sa ating kalayaan , pero si Andres Bonifacio ay may inambag din tulad ng pagiging supremo ng rebolusyon ng pilipinas,at si Heneral Emilio Aguinaldo ay tumulong sa bayan sa paraan ng paglaban sa mga Espanyol at naging unang Presidente ng Pilipinas. pero sa tingin nyo sino para sa inyo ang dapat maging bayani ng ating bansang pilipinas?

PARA SA AKIN SI JOSE RIZAL KASI HINDI SIYA GUMAMIT NG ARMAS PARA MAKIPAGLABANAN SA MGA ESPANYOL KUNDI SUMULAT LAMANG SIYA PARA MAKIPALABAN. KAYA DAPAT LANG NA SI JOSE RIZAL ANG PHILIPPINE NATIONAL HERO.

He was the right person to be our National Hero. Know why? Because fighting for the Freedom of your own country without using force and weapon is a hard thing to do. But he did it,he knew that his life is on the line if he do fight the Spanish, but he didn't scared to fight and he still wrote the words that he wanted to say from the bottom of his heart. He fought for the sake of his nation and his Filipino comrades. He save our country and he inspire Filipinos by his writing and let them be awake for their suffering from the Spanish colonial. Because of him, Filipinos learn to fight for their own sake and freedom. You didn't need to use force and weapon to save your country or to save someone, especially your comrades. You can save your country without anyone being sacrifice. And as they say, WORDS ARE MORE POWERFUL THAN ACTION. That's why for me, Dr. Jose Rizal is has the rights to be our National HERO.

Dr. Jose P. Rizal, because he did a best job for us. He sets all Filipinos free from slavery and sets better education. He is good example and inspiration to us most especially to students because of his intelligent and braveness.He fought through his pen,knowledge and books.Through his written articles, he touched the lives, and awakened the mind of people.He had testified the saying "A pen is powerful than a sword."His sensitivity to help others in need and his sincerity to serve,love to the people especially the poor,inspires as so much as a teachers!

For Me it should be Emillio Aguinaldo because before the spanish He was there for the Filipino's Did you think that being a Hero is just making any awakening of nationalism?

para po sakin ang pipiliin kong maging bayani ng ating bansa ay si Andres Bonifacio dahil nakipaglaban siya na maging malaya ang ating bansa,hindi man siya nagsulat ngunit nakipaglaban siya sa paraang alam, he is a man aof action TANONG: Para po sainyo sino ang may mabigat na ginampanang tungkulin sa ating bansa kaya naging malaya tayo sa mga espanyol? salamat po :)

Para sa akin , ang tatlong nabanggit ay dapat hirangin dahil inilaan naman nila ang kanilang buhay para sa kalayaan ng Pilipinas. pero kung papipiliin ako ng isa , si Jose Rizal ang dapat hirangin dahil napatunayan nya na kaya nyang patumbahin ang mga mananakop sa pamamagitan lamang ng pagsusulat :)
