In celebration of National Heroes� Day, we ponder on this baffling question: Did some of our heroes possess amulets that have special powers? A medallion with a Latin inscription which means �Supremo� is now in the possession of Boyet. Could this be an amulet used by Andres Bonifacio? In Cebu, a handkerchief owned by local hero Leon Kilat is displayed in the provincial museum. It was believed that the hanky was used by Kilat to protect him from bullets.
