Mellow Yellow

It's funny. I know so little about her, yet I feel so affected by her passing. One thing I know is that she played a huge role in gaining our democracy in the Philippines. I know it's corny, but that one thing I know about her is what makes me really feel the loss. The People Power Revolution happened in 1986. I was born 1984. For some reason, I can't seem to stop getting teary eyed as I watch the coverage of her wake. I guess it's because she seems to be such a nice lady; a president that didn't take advantage of her position. She loved the Filipinos and you can tell that she truly cares about our country. Her family sacrificed a lot for the Philippines. She brings Filipinos together and I always admire people who has the capability to do that. She has definitely proven that she has that character. Salamat, Cory. May you be a role model for our future leaders.
