(ABOVE) Ka Nilo was brought to the National Penitentiary, a convicted subversive, a respected activist, an amiable young man, a dreaded communist, a high security risk prisoner and I was one of his jailors. This was sometime in late 70,s, around 1979. I was then a fledging 25 year old bureaucrat (prison psychologist). Ka Nilo, an accomplished youth leader, was 35 years old.
(BELOW). More than three decades later ( 33 years later to be exact). We were once again reunited by faith—faith in the belief on Nationalism. This time I am a 58 year old Prison Superintendent. Ka Nilo is a 68 year old Bishop of the Philippine Independent Church.
