Rizal and Human Dignity
Authors: Wilson S. Chua, Ph.D
Our country had been set apart to have a hero in the person of Dr. Jose Rizal, At the tender age of eight, he was already aware of the importance of nationalism and began honing his artistic talents for the country, as can be seen in his first poem “Sa Aking mga Kabata”. Although extraordinarily gifted, Rizal chose not to enrich himself with his God-given talents but instead try to uplift our country by reaching out to Filipinos through his writings. Each one of Rizal's work of art is a masterpiece, filled with human values, ideas, lessons, and principles that were deeply embedded within him. His works are timeless, the messages they convey still touch the lives of modern Filipinos just as they have touched the Filipinos during the Spanish era, filling their hearts with love for the country.
Included within these pages are some of Rizal's best poems and essays, every one of them filled with meaningful messages with which will enlighten and encourage the Filipinos who will read them to love and serve the country. With this purpose in mind, each literary piece featured here is accompanied by information as to when, where, and why it was written by Dr. Jose Rizal. Written commentaries by distinguished personalities are also presented for each literary piece. Furthermore, much effort had been exerted and diligence in presenting the various ideas and values that Rizal had been implanted within his poems and essays.
Let this short journey into the mind of Rizal through his poems and essays bear fruit in the lives of the readers, enriching them not only with fortitude but excellence and uprightness as a person. With every glimpse of Rizal's person mirrored in his words, let us not forget that there was once a man whose dreams were dedicated to the Philippines. His every labor was for the betterment of the Filipinos; his death was for the glory of the country. Let us stand witness to the greatness of the man called Dr. Jose P. Rizal.

School is one of the agents from where the personality of human individual would form, it might not be the sole influence but it contributes a lot to the life of an individual since, the basic education system of our country requires the individual to stay in school more than 8 hours a day, 5 times a week_ Through this, one might showcase his/her identity from where he/she is coming and what culture does it bring. Thus, everyone should have the same culture and values as Filipino people who are living in the same country.
This work/textbook is one of the tools that will help educators, parents and leaders in instilling values to young individuals, most especially the students. Though the parents are the first teacher of values to their children, we can hardly deny the fact that every parent have their own ways and practices of their values.
The content of this work/textbook focuses on the human seven core values namely: Truth, Spirituality, Love, Economic Efficiency, Health. Patriotism and Nationalism, and Social Responsibility. From these core values, good Filipino values were formed and developed which means these are the sources of all Filipino values that we have. By knowing these values, we are able to really understand why we have such practices that other countries do not have and why there is belief that other countries do not have. Aside from knowing these values, we will also be informed that we have to, as well, become cognizant of their negative effects on individuals and on others.
The following chapters will give a short and concise practical explanation on the seven (7) core values that Filipino people have. Each chapter contains pre-activity, post-activity and post evaluation as well. The pre-activity will check the students' existing knowledge, practices and beliefs that they have on a specific value. The post activity after every discussion will check the learning experience of the students. While the post-evaluation makes the students reflect on how they are going to apply it to themselves, affect other people and improve the community in their own way.
