Yellow Rain

It rained confetti in Ayala today while the remains of Former President Corazon Aquino passed by Ninoy’s monument. Our office halted from work while we watch the procession carrying Cory’s casket marched through. Throng of people, supporters and alike flocked Ayala to witness this historical event. Today is the last day for public viewing before Mrs. Aquino is laid to rest besides Ninoy at the Manila Memorial Park on Wednesday, August 5, 2009.

Long Live Cory!!!

Corazon Aquino Passed Away at 76

One of our beacons of hope was extinguished today. The whole nation grieves to the loss of our beloved Former President Corazon-Aquino. She died at 3:18 am today due to colon cancer. Cory, as she was popularly called by the masses, fought for the freedom and peace here in our homeland the Philippines. She was an icon of strength for the oppressed and broke barriers when she became First Woman President in the world.

Long live freedom and democracy!!! Long live Cory Aquino!!!
