yeah, i know everybody is talking about her...but i just couldnt help myself..
if you work in the institution where she was confined, you thought everything is just ordinary. On the day she died, i was on duty,for weeks, mediamen have been outside and trying to get some scoop of her updates. i was waiting for something that night, but i did not hear it over the hospital operator, so i assumed right.
my colleague aproached us and told us there is some bad news, and we went to watch the TV news. there was a commotion outside the hospital but when you look out, everything seems just ordinary.
then news were like typhoon that flooded all lines; local and internationally, everybodu mourned for our former president.
i watched the news, coverages and special features and i cant help but cry.
i am never really patriotic, but her death made me realize how should i be proud of being a PINOY.
i wacthed her funeral this morning. i was so amazed of it.
who could summon all the important people in the country both now and before and pay respect to you? Only she, a former president.
It is very amazing to see all the bishops of the country bless her body one by one, imagine how many prayers would that be? the gravity of their prayers to be precise. All of them at your funeral on their best purple dress.
The aisle of the church are lined with NUNS.. Nuns from all orders lined her way as if they were soldiers. Who can summon those nuns? She even have a rosary from a saint, that is so amazing. Only she, a religious and faithful president. This only proves how her faith to God is very well seen by everyone. Yes, we all know that but i believe that beneath that superficiality is a deeper truth that her devotion to MAMA MARY and GOD is beyond what we see.
9 high officials of the forces carried her coffin outside. 1 representatives of each national forces ;navy,army,police, air force (im not sure), guarded her coffin as it takes its way to MMP...canons are being fired the whole day until sunset when she passed away..flags are mourning on her death and covers her coffin.. Only a former head of state could do that. Being the CHIEF, a title that comes with PRESIDENCY, she was responsible for keeping the nation safe and sound. Her 7 coup d' etat attempts were nothing to her. She surpassed it with grace and strength.
people from all walks of life, people from the society came to mourn for her. family feuds are forgotten, political rivalries are set aside, they came to pay respect to a woman whose power is way beyond anyone could imagine. Her influencing power gave rise to a historic and well known revolution. A revolution, where i did not witness, but is very well known and is attached to the bloodlines of all PINOYS.
the priest said "we loved her 3 times..." first was when NINOY died and she went back home...2nd was when she ran for president and third was when she passed away..
well. i may not have the priviledge to live on her reign but i know that what we are right now is because of what she did before, most especially, taking importance of the 1986 constitution.
