Honoring Tita Cory (Corazon Cojuangco Aquino)

It's only but fitting that today was declared a holiday. Today, August 5, 2009 the Filipino people were given the chance to bid Corazon Cojuangco Aquino their last farewell and lay her to rest.

I was glued to the TV the whole day watching her funeral cortege. There was the 7o vehicle convoy, the sea of people awaiting her, walking from Manila Manila Cathedral to Manila Memorial amidst the rain and the flood, the 4 untiring honor guards standing on the moving truck for hours and the throng of humanity honoring Tita Cory.

Dear President Aquino, you indeed lived a good life! You are a true Filipino hero. You will be forever remembered. Thank God for the gift of you. Your name will forever be embedded in the word demOCRacY.

Yellow ribbon in honor of Tita Cory

We won't forget...
