Rizal Day Celebration ’09

Rizal Day to move from Dec. 30 to June 19

Filipinos / Rizalenos would soon be honoring the country’s greatest hero on his birthday rather than on his death anniversary.

The House of Representatives has passed on third and final reading House Bill No. 5408 which seeks to move the observance of Rizal Day to June 19, the birthday of Dr. Jose Rizal, from Dec. 30, the date of his execution. The measure will amend Administrative Code of 1987, specifically Section 26, Chapter 7, Book I of Executive Order No. 292.

“Dr. Jose Rizal devoted practically all of his 35 years of existence on earth in putting premium on education and knowledge; and not on violence as a means of change,” said Manila Rep. Jaime Lopez who sponsored the measure.

Lopez said June 19 is the appropriate date to observe Rizal Day because it was Rizal’s writings that awakened Filipinos to unite together to attain the much-needed independence against foreign denomination and that his death alone did not trigger the 1896 revolution.

“It was his life-long accomplishments done during his lifetime that inspired and pushed us Filipinos to fight and work for our greatness as a race,” Lopez said.

Laguna Rep. Justin Marc Chipeco, a co-sponsor, said June 19 should be declared a “National Hero Day” nationwide.

National Historical Institute (NHI) chair Ambeth Ocampo has fully supported the transfer of Rizal Day as it would give Rizal the prominence he deserved rather than as an afterthought being squeezed between Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Pacquiao stuns Hatton with second-round TKO

LAS VEGAS – Manny Pacquiao was dominating. Ricky Hatton was left helpless. Pacquiao cemented his claim to being the best pound-for-pound boxer Saturday night with a spectacular performance that ended with Hatton sprawled out on the canvas after a devastating left hand to the head late in the second round.

Referee Kenny Bayless took one look at Hatton and declared the fight over at 2:59 of the round.

“I didn’t have to count,” Bayless said.

Pacquiao needed less than half a round to figure out the onrushing Hatton, hitting him with a flurry of punches midway through the first round before putting him down for the first time with a right hook to the head. Hatton got up at the count of eight but Pacquiao landed another flurry and dropped him again just before the end of the round.

Hatton attempted to carry the fight to Pacquiao in the second round but was mostly ineffective as Pacquiao sized him up for a big punch. It finally came at the end of the round when he landed a left cross that flattened the English fighter.
