For the 10,000 Filipino Youth who are going to the Kalayaan Islands...

"I believe and profess that a people never must value anything higher than the Dignity and Freedom of its existence;

That it must defend these with the last drop of its Blood;

That it has no duty more sacred and can obey no law that is higher;

That the shame of cowardly submission can never be wiped out;

That the poison of submission in the bloodstream of a people will be transmitted to its children, and paralyze and undermine the strength of later generations;

That Honor can be lost only once;

That, under most circumstances, a people is unconquerable if it fights a spirited struggle for its Liberty;

That a Bloody and Honorable fight assures the rebirth of the people even if Freedom is lost;

And that such a struggle is the Seed of Life from which a new tree inevitably will blossom."

(Carl von Clausewitz)
