Many of us learned about Rizal from our history classes in school and we assume we already know him. After all, he is one of our national heroes and, maybe, the most documented and venerated among them.

But how much do we really know him? Ambeth Ocampo offers a different view of Rizal from what we learned from textbooks. He seeks to put Rizal down from the pedestal and revered statues, and know him as who he really was without the overcoat: a human being.

As what Ambeth Ocampo says: we can always find something new in what is old. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account.

Rizal without the Overcoat New Edition

But he did. In June , Rizal wrote a letter that shows his love for his country and his fellow Filipinos. The step that I have taken, or am about to take, is undoubtedly very risky, and it is unnecessary to say that I have pondered on it a great deal. I know that everyone is opposed to it but I realize also that no one knows what goes on in my heart. I cannot live knowing that many are suffering unjust persecution because of me; I cannot live seeing my brothers [hermanos] and their large families persecuted like criminals.
