ay, oo nga!
Goodbye to our beloved president
To Kris, please stop your mouth and give us time to grieve. You bitch, using your mothers passing to bored us to death with your scripted talk. Boy Abunda is banking on it .. what higher tv ratings.
I think you’re out of line. She’s the daughter, remember? She has EVERY RIGHT to grieve over her mother’s passing.
Hundreds of thousands of Filipinos, many chanting ”Cory! Cory!” and tossing confetti in the air, jammed pavements in Manila to bid farewell to revered former President and democracy icon Corazon Aquino.
Office workers skipped lunch to join students and ordinary residents waiting hours to catch a glimpse of her flag-draped coffin passing slowly through the streets on a flat-bed truck after her death from colon cancer on Saturday.
Television reports described the crowd as the biggest since a million people came out in the 1986 “people power” revolution that ousted dictator Ferdinand Marcos and catapulted Aquino to power.
“I was here more than 20 years ago to fight for what I believe was right and moral,” said Norman Hernandez, a lawyer at a mining company in the Makati business district.
Aquino, he said, was inspiring Filipinos after her death to guard against new attacks on democracy. “I thought that was over, but she is inspiring us to carry on the fight.”
Many in the street were clad in yellow, the colour associated with Aquino’s drive to entrench democracy.
Aquino’s family was moving the body of the late president from a school gymnasium to the Manila Cathedral for memorial services late on Tuesday.
As the cortege passed through Makati, well-wishers waved yellow balloons and banners and flashed the “L” hand sign, her trademark during the revolution.
Office workers, many too young to have joined the uprising known as EDSA One, took videos and snapped photos from mobile phones as patriotic songs popular during the revolt blared through loudspeakers.
”I didn’t experience EDSA One,” said Jen David, a publishing house employee. ”I am the EDSA Dos generation. I only heard stories from my parents, so I wanted to feel what was their experience in the 1980s.”
Aquino will be buried on Wednesday beside her assassinated husband Benigno at a private cemetery in southern Manila.
She will be accorded full military honours as a former president and commander-in-chief, but her children have declined state honours.
”The honor should come from the Filipino people,” Aquino’s youngest daughter, Kris, told national television. ”It shouldn’t be a Malacanang decree,” she added, referring to the presidential palace.
Do you understand what ninoy did?
He gave his life so that many will be save. In times of dictatorial regime a lot of people press people died.
The Media was there to wake up us.
We don’t need the ASAP entertainers to sings songs of EDSA. I am sure an LP will be released soon.
You were just born yesterday. You don’t even know the meaning of FREEDOM , as you sit in your comfort zone.
When you become a mother like Cory , you start to think that our country’s debt is the reason why your children cannot go to college.
What are you talking about?!!!
Yes, Tita Cory does have a resemblance with Kris when the former was younger (they both have the same eyes..), but the rest of Kris’ facial features — even her traits — are all the same as Ninoy’s. 🙂
Yes Sam Tita Cory does have a resemblance with Kris when the former was younger (they both have the same eyes..), but the rest of Kris’ facial features — even her traits — are all the same as Ninoy’s. But President Noynoy’s persona is more like Cory Aquino
