I have to admit that I wouldprefer by far tomake friends with a Filipino rather than have to lash out to strike one down. Isometimes feel sorry for one poor guy who tried, but failedto rob me, he may have been a very dangerous character but what drove him to become that way, foul circumstance or that ofnecessity.
A hero, in general, is anyone who is admired and idealized for his courage and earned reputation because of his noble qualities and outstanding achievements.
There are many heroes in our day to day lives and Manny Pacquiao is no exception and can be called a modern Filipino boxing hero because of obvious reasons. He is a hero because he always take pride of beating anyone in the ring that earned him a reputation to be the best pound-for-pound boxer that make Filipinos proud all over the world.
Comparing him to our national hero Dr. Jose Rizal is absurd. No need to explain further here.
