It's Almost Like Romeo and Juliet...

[Welp, life happened again... ] It was supposed to be the month of love, so that meant closing out with a love story. A tragic one involving a man who loved his country and a great deal of women. Jose Rizal was a playboy, yes, but there's always the girl that got away... Or was taken away by disapproving parents. Therein lies the tragedy.
