 Set in the open ground, soldiers also articulated the virtue of Maranaos. “Huwag kayong mawalan ng Pag-asa, dahil Kung diskarte sa buhay ang pag-uusapan, bilib ako sa mga Maranao. Kaya dapat bilib din kayo sa sarili niyo. Kami na inyong sundalo, sama-sama nating ibabangon muli ang siyudad ng Marawi” (Don’t lose hope, because if we will talk about ingenuity, I admire Maranao, therefore, you must also admire yourselves. We, your soldiers, let’s be united to rebuild Marawi City), says Corporal Lozano.
