Farewell President Corazon Aquino

Just finished watching the live coverage of late Former Philippine President Corazon Aquino's funeral. Eventhough the weather is not good in Manila today because of rain, it didn't stop the thousands of people who attended the funeral. This only proves how she is love by the Filipino people. Rain failed to dampen the spirits of thousands of Filipinos who, after the public viewing at the remains of Aquino was closed, decided to stay and lined up outside the Cathedral, wishing that they can see the beloved president of the Philippines. The funeral convoy started to move out at around 11:26 a.m. By then people, most of them wearing yellow shirts or ribbons, or holding yellow balloons lined three deep on Roxas Boulevard.

President Gloria Arroyo declared today a national holiday for the funeral. Arroyo paid her respects to Aquino at the cathedral shortly before the funeral Mass and after arriving home from a shortened trip to the U.S. She didn’t stay for the service, attending a Mass at the presidential palace instead.

Aquino had called for Arroyo’s resignation or removal since 2005 for alleged vote-rigging and corruption.

Students, employees, professionals and even members of various organizations clad in yellow clothes, yellow rain clothes and yellow hats and caps crammed the boulevard waving yellow flags, streamers and banners with words showing love and gratitude to the late president as early before dawn.

I want to thank late President Aquino for being a good leader to our country and for taking back the democrary for the Filipino people. May your soul rest in peace.
