Remembering Cory in Davao


Ours wasn't as star-studded a memorial as they had at the Manila Cathedral, but I'd like to think that it was no less heartfelt. We had two memorial Masses for Cory Aquino: one yesterday, and another one today. Despite the holiday, the Ateneo chapel was still full. Almost everyone was in yellow.


Not many people may know this but Ateneo de Davao is part of Cory's history. It was at the university where she gave her first policy speech back when she was campaigning against Marcos.


In remembrance of Cory, we also tied yellow ribbons everywhere. The shot above was taken in front of our store.

Yellow ribbons also adorned the palm trees of the university.
