Corazon Aquino: Who Are You?

I wish I could write you a proper tribute. But how do you find the words for all the good things you represent. Perhaps if I borrow other people's words it will be good enough. Somebody said you were God's gift to the Philippines. It was no less than Sister Lucia of Fatima. A lady said you made her part of history. A guy said that you were the conscience of our nation. He was a former Atheist. One of our countrymen explains the reason why you died on the first day of August. And personally, I don't think I can look at a yellow ribbon the same way again. It pays to be good. Honestly, I did forget. Evil men thrive for a while (just like the corrupt politicians in our midst). But in the end it pays to be good. The outpouring of love as your body pass by Ayala is a testament to that. And that's you. For me that is your legacy. Thank you.
