“Saludsod ko iti bagik, ibaluddak ngata ditoy? Tortiurendak la ketdi. No ramesendak ngay? Ay, apo … yad-adayom! Ania ti naaramidko a lak-amek ti kastoy? Awan ti makitak a dakes kadagiti inar-aramidko. Ngem nalabit a gapu iti panagprotprotestak, ti panangilablaban ko iti karbengak ken panangiyebkas iti arungaing ti kaaduan. Adu ti nabasbasak maipanggep iti kinaranggas ti Martial Law kadagiti tumubngar iti gobierno ngem diak nimannama a maaramid daytoy kaniak.”
