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)

Para sa akin, si Jose Rizal ang mas karapat-dapat na maging pambansang bayani dahil sa kanyang pagiging matalino at pagbibigay ng inspirasyon sa bansa. Kung pipiliin ko lang kasi si Bonifacio dahil literal siyang nakipaglaban, tingin ko magagawa niya rin naman yun pero mas pinili niya lang na hindi gumamit ng dahas.

It would be Dr. Jose Rizal. Even though no legislation had been passed that making it official, he is already referred as our Philippine National Hero. Rizal was probably one of the brightest at bravest person in his time, on which he fights for rights of the Filipino people. I believe that he deserves to be the Philippine National Hero.

tama ka si RIzal ang dapat maging bayani ng ating bansa sapagkat, malaki ang kanyang naiambag sa kalayaan ng pilipinas
