President Cory Aquino: A People's Farewell

Wednesday, August 05, 2009

The sky is pouring, as I watch the events unfold on TV for the funeral of President Corazon Aquino. She has already made her mark here and around the world for making the people of the Philippines and elsewhere be proud of the freedom we enjoy. Carried by guards outside of the church, she has also been given military honors by the Philippine National Police since she is a former chief.

People are clapping for the things that she has done for this country. Thousands cried because they lost one great person, a mother, a grandmother, a president and a champion of democracy. That is Corazon Aquino, and she will never be forgotten.

Starting from the Manila Cathedral, they will go to Anda Circle then to Roxas Boulevard, turn left at Quirino Avenue and to Osmeña Highway. It will go through the South Luzon Expressway and take the Sucat Exit, then it will end at the Manila Memorial Park where she will be laid to rest.
