“Class, I’m Josephine Bracken Rizal-Abad, your teacher in English starting today. Together, we will be learning the language used by all the nations under the British Empire, and by the United States of America,” Josephine told her pupils in Cebu City on the first day of class.
She had seven students in her class. All of the students were scions of businessmen, government officials, and private professionals.
Josephine didn’t introduce herself as the widow of Doctor Jose “Rizal” Mercado, the Filipino ophthalmologist who was executed by an eight-member Spanish colonial army in Bagumbayan Field at 7:03 in the morning of December 30, 1896.
