Philippine Hero

On January 1st we decided to watch the fireworks display at Seattle's Space Needle to greet the new year. We were able to park near the Needle right when the fireworks went off. Afterward, we decided to drive around before going home. Then I noticed the bridge with a familiar sign on the side. I was surprised to see the Philippine hero's name Dr. Jose P. Rizal. I did not know that a bridge in honor of our national hero is present here in Washington State.

It is a good feeling knowing that here abroad a landmark is being named after a Filipino. It is an honor to have our heritage being acknowledged here abroad.
