1.Mention some of Rizal's dark hours during his boyhood and youth.
Since boyhood Rizal knew the value of good educa- tion. His exile in Dapitan gave him the opportunity to put into practice his educational ideas. In 1893, he esta- blished a school which existed until the end of his exile in July 1896. It began with three pupils and in the course of time the enrollment increased to 16 and later 21. In his letter to Blumentritt on March 13, Rizal said that he had 16 pupils in his school and these pupils did not pay any tuition. Instead of charging them, he made them work in his garden, fields and construction projects in the community.Rizal taugh this boys reading, writing, languages (Spanish and English), geography, history, mathematics arithmetic and geometry), industrial work, nature study, morals and gymnastics. He trained them how to collect specimens of plants and animals, to love work, and to "behave like men".Formal classes were conducted between 2:00 to 4:00 P.M. In Ateneo, the best pupil was called an "emperor" and he sat at the head of the bench whereas the poorest pupil occupies the end of the bench.
During recess the pupils built fires in the garden to drive away the insects, pruned the fruit trees, and manured the soil.Outside the class hours, Rizal encouraged them to play games in order to strengthen their bodies. They had gymnastics, boxing, wrestling, stone-throwing, swimming, arnis (native fencing), and boating.

2.Why was he named Jose and surnamed Rizal?
His name was changed into Jose Rizal for him to be able to travel freely and disassociate him from his brother, who had gained notoriety with his earlier links with native priests who were sentenced to death as subversives.

1.Mention some of Rizal's Dark hours During his Boyhood and Youth.

Answer:

During his boyhood and youth Rizal had his dark hours.
He was envied and others pitied him. Sometimes they accused him wrongly, sometimes rightly, and always the accusation cost him half a dozen or three lashes.
He used to win in the gangs, for no one defeated him.
He succeeded to pass over many, excelling them, and despite the reputation he had (good boy) rare was the day when he was not whipped or given five or six beatings on the hand.
When he went in the company of my classmates, he got from them more sneers, nicknames, and they called himCalam beño, (08) but when only one went with him, he behaved so well that he forgot his insults.
Some were good and treated him very well, like Marcos Rizal, son of a cousin of mine, and others.
Some of them, much later, became by classmates in Manila, and we found themselves in very changed situations.

2. Why was he named Jose and surnamed Rizal?

Answer:

His name was changed into Jose Rizal for him to be able to travel freely and disassociate him from his brother, who had gained notoriety with his earlier links with native priests who were sentenced to death as subversives.
And his Mother Teodora Alonzo was a religious person and the jose came to the patron saint and saint joseph.
Jose Rizal and his family got the surname 'Rizal' from his Chinese ancestor Domingo Lameo.
Rizal means "Ricial or grains", and they started using it 1731.
His true surname is Mercado, but to keep his family safe he used the surname Rizal.

1. Jose Rizal is a good boy, at early age his mother was his first teacher,he is obedient boy and full of question in mind, as I have learned in his life he was an intelligent lad actually i don't remember in his boyhood of dark hours maybe he was too studious...but during his youth and adolescence he fought for the Spanish with his pen and words maybe his dark hours is that he did not enjoy life because he give his life to our motherland.

2. Jose Rizal was surname was Mercado but his family did not paid attention to this, thus give him an appearance to travel everywhere and dissociate him from the “Rizal Mercado family”.

1. One of the Rizal’s dark hours during his boyhood and youth is when he was studying at The University of Sto. Tomas he chooses to stop because the Filipino students were being discriminated by their Dominican tutors… Their always telling that Filipinos are an idiot that’s why he chooses to stop from studying rather than being discriminated by their Dominican tutors.

2. He is named after San Jose. He changed his surname when he enrolled at the Ateneo Municipal de Manila because his brother Paciano was the assistant of Father Burgos … Since Paciano Mercado was known as the favorite student and helper of Father Burgos, Paciano advised Jose to use their family’s second surname: RIZAL because the surname Mercado had already come under the suspicion of the Spaniards authority. He changed his surname Mercado to Rizal because he wants to assure his families safety from Spaniards.

1. Some of Rizal’s dark hours during boyhood are when his classmate call him dwarfs, he felt insult about it so that he fight with them. And when his only brother died named Paciano, he is very with his brother so that it really hard for him to accept that Paciano is gone. And also when his mother arrest by the Spaniard and become blind, he loves his mother so much.
2. Rizal dropped his last three names that make up his full name, at the advice of his brother Paciano so that it become JOSE. And jose give by his mother Teodora came from Saint Joseph, because his mother is very religious woman . And he surname Rizal because Governor-general Narcisco Claveria ordered all native families in the Philippines to choose new surnames from a list of Spanish family names so that Francisco Mercado adopted the surnamed “Rizal” came from the word RACIAL which means ‘the green of the young growth or green fields .

1.Mention some of Rizal's dark hours during his boyhood and youth
Rizal first studied under the tutelage of Justiniano Aquino Cruz in Biñan, Laguna. He was sent to Manila and enrolled at the Ateneo Municipal de Manila. He graduated as one of the nine students in his class declared sobresaliente or outstanding. He continued his education at the Ateneo Municipal de Manila to obtain a land surveyor and assessor's degree, and at the same time at the University of Santo Tomas Faculty of Arts and Letters where he studied Philosophy and Letters. Upon learning that his mother was going blind, he decided to study medicine specializing in ophthalmology at the University of Santo Tomas Faculty of Medicine and Surgery but did not complete the program claiming discrimination made by the Spanish Dominican friars against the native students.


2.Why was he named Jose and surnamed Rizal?
r. José P. Rizal (full name: José Prota[1] Rizal Mercado y Alonso Realonda) (June 19, 1861 – December 30, 1896) was a Filipino polymath, nationalist and the most prominent advocate for reforms in the Philippines during the Spanish colonial era. He is considered the Philippines' national hero and the anniversary of Rizal's death is commemorated as a Philippine holiday called Rizal Day. Rizal's 1896 military trial and execution made him a martyr of the Philippine Revolution.

He was known as a hero, author, and an eye doctor. As a political figure, Rizal was the founder of La Liga Filipina, a civic organization that subsequently gave birth to the Katipunan led by Andres Bonifacio and Emilio Aguinaldo. He was a proponent of institutional reforms by peaceful means rather than by violent revolution. The general consensus among Rizal scholars, however, attributed his martyred death as the catalyst that precipitated the Philippine Revolution.

SUBA JHONEVA ANN
ACT II
1.Moments before his execution by a firing squad of native infantry of the Spanish Army, backed by an insurance force of Spanish troops, the Spanish surgeon general requested to take his pulse; it was normal. Aware of this, the Spanish sergeant in charge of the backup force hushed his men to silence when they began raising '¡vivas!' with the partisan crowd.
There is controversy on whether Rizal actually wrote a document of retraction which stated: "I retract with all my heart whatever in my words, writings, publications and conduct have been contrary to my character as a son of the Catholic Church. That his burial was not on holy ground led to doubts about his retraction.

2.Remember the incident of the GOMBURZA? Paciano was the assistant of Father Burgos in the fight for the FILIPINIZATION of the parishes. Since Paciano Mercado was known as Father Burgos' favorite student and helper, Paciano advised Jose to use the family's second surname, Rizal, because the surname MERCADO had already come under the suspicion of the Spanish authorities.
The main reason why he changed his surname, was to keep his family safe from the Spaniards' suspicious noses. And that's why he changed Mercado to Rizal he wanted to keep his family safe from Spaniards

2.Jose name as Jose because by his religiuous mother,in honor of St. Joseph.And it was normal or tradition for Catholic parents to name their children after the saints.
Rizal name as Rizal because during the time of Gobernor Claveria they issued a decree directing all Filipinos families has to choose their own surname, Filipinos surname which were difficult for the Spanish authorities to pronounce.And said that the surname Rizal is being a man of independent character.Rizal surname is more fit than Mercado because the term Rizal came fro the Spanish word Ricial which means "green field" or "new pasture" and that is Jose Rizal was.

1.) The dark hours during Rizal’s boyhood is when he was in Ateneo they always bullied him it’s because of his height and one time, one of his classmates insult his parents he never accept it instead he used to fought with that person even he so small.
The dark hours during Rizal’s Youth hood, I think when Rizal was in prison because of his novels and when he was executed.

2.) They gave him a name Jose because it is from the calendar Saint Joseph. The surname Rizal it is a Spanish Family name which means green field. Rizal was originally name Ricial suggest by close family.

Some of Rizal's dark hours during his boyhood and youth.
When he was four years old, his sister Concepcion, the eight children in the Rizal family, died at the age of three. It was on this occasion that Rizal remembered having shed real tears for the first time.
His mother was imprisoned in Sta. Cruz, Laguna for allegedly poisoning the wife of her cousin Jose Alberto, a rich property owner of Biñan and brother of Manuel and Gregorio.
When the teacher asked him if he know about Spanish and Latin José answered a little that were the boys in the class, especially Pedro, the teacher’s son laughed at Jose’s answers. At the afternoon of his first day in school, Jose met the bully, Pedro. He was angry at this bully for making fun of him during his conversation with the teacher in the morning. So, Jose challenged Pedro to a fight. The latter readily accepted, thinking that he could easily beat the Calamba boy who was smaller and younger. The two boys wrestled furiously in the classroom, much to the glee of their classmates. Jose, having learned the art of wrestling from his athletic Tiyo Manuel, defeated the bigger boy. For this feat, he became popular among his classmates. After the class in the afternoon, a classmate named Andres Salandanan challenged him to an arm-wrestling match. They went to a sidewalk of a house and wrestled with their arms. Jose, having the weaker arm, lost and nearly cracked his head on the sidewalk.
When he saw the calesa that was flower that him Biñan! Then everything looked sad; a flower that he touched, a stone that attracted his attention he gathered, fearful that he might not see it again upon his return. It was a sad but delicate and quite pain that possessed him.
Why was he named José and surnamed Rizal?
José's father Francisco adopted the surname "Rizal" (originally Ricial, the green of young growth or green fields), which was suggested to him by a provincial governor, or as José had described him, "a friend of the family". However, the name change caused confusion in the business affairs of Francisco, most of which were begun under the old name. After a few years, he settled on the name "Rizal Mercado" as a compromise, but usually just used the original surname "Mercado". Upon enrolling at the Ateneo Municipal de Manila, José dropped the last three names that make up his full name, at the advice of his brother, Paciano Rizal Merado, and the Rizal Mercado family, thus rendering his name as "José Protasio Rizal". Of this, Rizal writes: "My family never paid much attention [to our second surname Rizal], but now I had to use it, thus giving me the appearance of an illegitimate child!" This was to enable him to travel freely and disassociate him from his brother, who had gained notoriety with his earlier links with native priests who were sentenced to death as subversives. From early childhood, José and Paciano were already advancing unheard-of political ideas of freedom and individual rights which infuriated the authorities. Despite the name change, José, as "Rizal" soon distinguishes himself in poetry writing contests, impressing his professors with his facility with Castilian and other foreign languages, and later, in writing essays that are critical of the Spanish historical accounts of the pre-colonial Philippine societies. Indeed, by 1891, the year he finished his sunset, this second surname had become so well known that, as he writes to another friend, "All my family now carry the name Rizal instead of Mercado because the name Rizal means persecution! Good! I too want to join them and be worthy of this family name..." José became the focal point by which the family became known, at least from the point of view of colonial authorities.
The main reason why he changed his surname was to keep his family safe from the Spaniards' suspicious noses. And that's why he changed Mercado to Rizal.

1. I think the darkest hour for Rizal in his boyhood and youth hood was when he chooses to study far from his family. When he was teased by his friends when he was young for being small and thin. When he chooses to be independent and explore the world to gain more knowledge as a request also of his family because he is a very intelligent person and he can practice his ability on other countries better. And also his burden of achieving his goals and mission to protect and bring back the freedom, rights and dignity of the Filipino people.
2. As far as I know José Rizal was named José Rizal because his mother Teodora Alonzo was a very religious person and his name José was came from Joseph the husband on Mama Mary. On the other hand his surname was not really Rizal but Mercado. Rizal was given by a family name friend who was a Spanish Alcalde Mayor (provincial governor) of Laguna. His brother decided to name him Jose Rizal the surname of Mercado at that time was in danger because many people were angry to them so he uses it for his protection.

The darkest hour during rizals time are the following,first is the death of his younger sister named concha,whom he loved so much because he was one year older the concha.Concha died at the aged of 3 because of her sickness.Her death was rizals first sorrow.He was 4 years old that time and he said that it was his first shed tears because of love and grief for his sister.
The martyrdom of the GOM-BUR-ZA,they are the famouse filipino priests who are executed at sunrise of feb17,1872by the order of gov. general izquierdo.The martyrdom of this three priests was mourned by the rizal family and other patriotic families in the philippines also.The execution that happened to the 3 priests inspired and gave courage to rizal to fight against the evil deeds of the spanish authorities here in the philippines .
The third is the injustice for his beloved mother Dona teodora.In june 1872 his mother was arrested by the spanish authorities because of the malicious allegation that she and his brother Jose alberto a rich ilustrado of binan laguna,who had just returned from his buisness trip in europe tried to poison his wife.the true story there is that the wife of alberto had an affair with other man and leave their child and their house alone,but Teodora talk to his brother to forgive his unfaithful wife and save their relationship for the familys reputation and so the brother followed to the adevice of his sister and the couple lived together,but the wife is a traidor she still file the case against Dona Teodora.After arresting dona teodora she was forced to walked from Calamba to Sta cruz about 50km.After two and a half years she was released from the prison.She was defended by two famous laeyers in manila Francisco de Marcaida and Manuel Marzan.
Rizal was also a victim of spanish brutality,it was a summer vacation in 1878he was freshman medical student that time at the UST when he experienced the taste of spanish brutality,he was walking in the street because of the darkness he failed to recognized the figure of the man while passing him,it was the Liutenant of guardia civil because of the darkness he did not salute nor show any sign of respect or say a courteous greetings to that person.The leutinant get mad at him so he whipped out his sword and brutally slashed the latter back of rizal,Rizal was very shocked.Rizal was reported that incident to gen.primo de rivera the spanish governor that time but nothing happened.The wound last for two weeks
He was named jose because his mother was a faithful devotee of St. Jose and it is San Joses festival when he was borned.While he got his surname Rizal because their family name “MERCADO” had come under the suspicious of the spanish authorities because his brother Paciano had used “MERCADO” at the college of san jose and he was known as the favorite student of Fr. BURGOS.So they used “rizal” their surname instead of MERCADO and it was also given by the spanish alcalde mayor their family friend.

One of the darkest hour of Rizal was the death of her sister Concepcion who died at the age of three, her death was rizal’s first sorrow in life at his age of four. Next was the false accusation to his mother Dona Teodora Alonzo that imprisoned her at sta cruz Laguna for attempting to poison her sister-in-law, she was jailed for two years.
His first day in Binan School doesn’t seems so good as well, I guess he was been laugh by the class because of his answers he look a lil’ bit shy at first. …
There was one time in the afternoon while their teacher was having a siesta, he met the bully named Pedro, son of their teacher he is one of his classmate that make fun of him during his conversation with the teacher and Rizal was very angry at him.
But this was not the first time he was discriminate by his classmate for being sickly and undersize they used to underestimate Rizal, In Ateneo when he was eleven there are some incident that he use to debate some of his classmate and professor.

Rizal’s Father Francisco used the surname Mercado adopted from his late paternal great-great grandfather Domingo Lamco who changed their surname to indicate their Chinese merchant roots, to free his descendant from the anti-chinese animosity of the Spanish Authorities. In 1849, Governor General Narciso Claveria ordered all Filipino families to choose new surnames from the list of Spanish family names. Jose’s father Francisco adopted the name RIZAL originally Ricial means the green of young growth of green fields which was suggested to him by a provincial governor.
His name Jose was chosen by his mother who was a devotee of the Christian saint San Jose. His brother told him to use the name Rizal so that he would be disassociate with him, because during that time he was under suspicious by the Spanish fray for having a connection with the gomburza.

1. Mention some of Rizal's dark hours during his boyhood and youth.

His mother was thrown into prison, accused of a crime of which she was so wholly incapable that everybody knew it was a pure fabrication. The charge against her was that she had conspired with her brother, José's uncle Alberto Realonda, to kill his wife, who had separated from him. The real reason for the arrest, as everybody well knew, was that honest, independent Francisco Rizal Mercado had been too frank in dealing with two Spanish officials, and that these men now sought to wreak vengeance on the father of José by imprisoning José's mother.

2. Why was he named José and surnamed Rizal?

José's father was a man of independent thought. To be called "Mercado", which means "market", struck him as inappropriate for a farmer. He might never have thought about it if the Governor General had not called his attention to this incongruity. But now that orders had come saying that he should be named "Mercado", Francisco decided that he should not! He adopted the word "racial", which means "green field", changed the spelling to "Rizal", and gave his children that name, just for the sake of his independent soul and his sense of fitness. Perhaps, too, José's second name "Protasio" was as near to "protesto" as he thought wise to spell it.
