Pen Is Mightier Than Sword

Jose Rizal for me was one of the most remarkable heroes that once lived. He is the Philippines’ national hero. He ended the suffering of Filipinos for almost 300 years  from the Spaniards which colonized Philippines. But whats the most amazing thing was, he didn’t use any brute force, instead,  he wrote novels, essays, and newspaper articles urging equality before the law for both Filipinos and Spaniards. Because of this, Jose Rizal was arrested and accused of inciting rebellion and was shot. This increased Filipinos’ anger waging into a full scale revolt against Spain.
