May bagong silang,
May bago nang buhay,
Sa Bagong Lipunan.
Magbabago ang lahat,
Tungo sa pag-unlad,
at ating itanghal,
Victims of the Martial Law will disagree with me but it seemed peaceful and quiet during that time. As a child, we did not mind the curfew. The only time I joined a protest rally was when the Education Act of 1981 was being considered. This Act will put the University of the Philippines under the Ministry of Education which many UP students strongly opposed.
However, here are the positive legacy of the Martial Law:
Cultural Center of the Philippines
Folk Arts Theater of the Philippines
Product Development & Design Center of the Philippines
Philippine International Convention Center (PICC)
