Be like national hero Jose Rizal.

Human rights lawyer Chel Diokno is encouraging the Filipino youth to emulate the national hero in standing up for truth, freedom and justice in the country. He said no one is too young to take such a stand.

Diokno made the appeal to today’s millennials on Rizal’s 159th birth anniversary on June 19.

“Maging paalala sana ang araw na ito, lalo na sa kabataan natin: you are never too young to speak for truth, freedom, and justice, just like Jose Rizal did,” he tweeted.

Diokno said Rizal was right when he declared the Filipino youth is the hope of the nation.

“Sa kanyang 159th birth anniversary, totoong totoo pa rin ang sinabi niya noon: kayo ang tunay na pag-asa ng ating bayan,” he said.

Rizal, a patriot, doctor and writer, was born on June 19, 1861 i Calamba, Laguna. On December 30, 1896, he was executed at Bagumbayan, now Rizal Park, for rebellion and sedition against the Spanish colonizers.
