“Malaking pagdurusa sa araw araw na buhay ng milyon milyong Pilipino pag tuluyang nawala ang ABS CBN. Dito sila umaasa ng karagdagang impormasyon, libangan at serbisyo. Malaking panganib sa lipunan pag mahigit 11,000 pamilya ang naapektuhan ng kawalan ng trabaho. Panginoon nanalangin po kami sa inyo. Sagipin nyo po ang ABS CBN.”
