February 20, 1942

Heavy fighting in Bataan. The Japanese are intensifying their attack. KGEI said the situation “is very grave.” Right now, I can hear the roar of planes.

Never thought the war would overrun this country. What is happening is almost unbelievable. Who would have imagined that in less than three months the USAFFE would be swept out of all Luzon except for the small peninsula of Bataan?

Some say the convoy will arrive any time now. I have stopped believing in rumors. I will just pray. Prayers give strength.

Even kings pray. Only the devil does not pray.
