My last farewell

replica of Jose Rizal's prison cell The Jose Rizal museum inside Fort Santiago in Intramuros has a replica of the prison cell where the Philippine national hero was incarcerated before his execution by the Spanish colonial government. It was in this cell on the eve of his execution that he wrote his final poem, left untitled by Rizal but now known as "Mi ultimo adios."

I read again Rizal's "Mi ultimo dios." How strong a man he must have been.
