This past week has created much happenings in our country that are worth written in the annals of our Philippine history.
Congressman Bongbong Marcos and former Congresswoman Imee Marcos came to the wake of former President Cory Aquino to pay their last tribute. Now, who wouldn't be touched by that 'historic' moment?
Matapos ang ilang dekada ng Marcos vs Aquino family dahil sa pagkamatay ni Ninoy (na ang itinuturing na utak ay ang pamilya Marcos), nagkaharap din finally ang dalawang pamilya. Both camps couldn't say na meron na silang reconciliation, but I am sure, that moment has created a very big impact on our history.
The Aquino family didn't accept Malacañang's offer for a state funeral entitled to former president Cory. Dahil daw sa kanilang 'moral and political differences'.
However, Cory was given full military honors yesterday. Some would say, ano ang difference ng ginawang parangal kay Cory as against a State Funeral. I heard one radio commentator say yesterday,
"Ang kulang lang actually dito, ay iyong hindi siya ibinurol sa Malacañang. But essentially, almost all the details accorded in a State Funeral are there".
For the history- I have never seen such honor and respect given to any Filipino as such was given to Cory yesterday. The outpouring of people lining up in the streets, just waiting to have a glimpse at the former president's final remains is so memorable.
A lot of people are saying that it was just like in 1983 (when Ninoy was killed) and in 1986 (during the EDSA Revolution).
Add the fact na talagang wala ring tigil ang pagbuhos ng ulan maghapon, but that didn't stop the people from participating in the long procession for Cory's burial.
Mahal talaga ng tao si Cory.
Hindi ko alam kung nakakatawa.
Pero naaasiwa ako.
Some TV and radio reporters mistake the name of Cory Aquino to that of President Arroyo.
"Malapit na pong dumaan sa aming harapan ang mga labi ni Pangulong Arroyo".
"At ilang sandali nga lang po ay ihahatid na sa huling hantungan si Pangulong Arroyo".
Slip of the tongue?
Inspired ito sa post na nabasa ko sa kwentong tambay:
kris: pupunta ka ba sa burol?
glo: oo sana kung pwede
kris: pwede naman
kris: e sasama ka ba sa libing ni mom sa wednesday?
glo: oo gusto ko 'yan!
kris: sige pasusukatan na kita ng kabaong.
