Pinangatawanan niya ang pagiging martyr sapagkat iyon ang alam niyang nararapat at dahil tama ang pinaniniwalaan at ipinaglalaban niya. Isa siyang babaero kung maituturing, pero malapit at mapagmahal lang daw talaga siya sa mga babae. Mapagmahal siyang kapatid, kaibigan, estudyante, anak, at mamamayan. Ating pagbalik-tanawan ang kanyang buhay ngayong araw.
