I went to Intramuros here in Manila with my friends. We visited the place where the Philippine national hero, Jose Rizal was held captive until he was executed. This made me think about heroes. Where are they now? Did they all die? Or are heroes now different from heroes then?
Maybe ONE person who will urge everyone for change isn’t enough nowadays. Everyone is inspired by everyone and everything that can communicate. Methods of brainwashing are left and right. One person alone cannot do that today. Perhaps it is really no longer about someone leading the way, but for individuals to decide to be heroes themselves, both in little personal ways and in group action.
