it is an amazing experience to be in her presence even for just a few seconds. president cory helped FREE us, what's a few minutes of our time to honor her, right? if you can, do go to her wake, or take time out to greet her on wednesday's convoy.
this was my view after the 8PM mass my friends and i attended in la salle greenhills. everything was very peaceful, very solemn.. so many supporters came despite the rain. people were crying as they approached the former president. it was so touching. it was great to see the family look all at peace, yes, sad and tired, but all at peace.
if you didn't watch the buzz that day, you missed out on a lot. my friend mariel and i texted each other throughout the interview because it was so touching, so inspiring, felt like our hearts were breaking. sent a message of support to ate kris right after, and almost couldn't believe she had the time to reply saying thank you.
this was my sister's view from her office along ayala avenue. i wish so wish i was there. my mom and i watched the whole coverage on abs and anc. i was brought to tears by all the yellow balloons flying and yellow confetti falling from the sky. my sister said that this was "the day ayala avenue stopped and gave a standing ovation".
