What is your reaction when you saw Bong Bong and Imee Marcos at the former President Corazon Aquino's wake? Were you also surprised? What are you thinking? I can't deny the fact that I was surprised that I saw them. It could be at least flattering but I don't expect any reconciliation that will happen to them and yet it was reported that Noynoy is not yet ready for that. The grand children of Cory Aquino were the ones who entertained them.

I have to watch it later. But anyway, I think there's no harm if they are really sincere. I remember Bongbong and Kris already met before and Kris even kissed the latter after the interview. If Imelda Marcos was the one who came,it will be a different story though. I just hope that these two families will reconcile wholeheartedly. Thanks!

Yeah I really believe there was not harm about their sincerity. The real harm was the media for bringing up the topic regarding the Marcos-Aquino issue that was happened for a decades ago already. I can't really blame Bong Bong for snapping that he only wants to visit Pres. Aquino as part of paying their respect. Both of the families were have been hurt emotionally even the fact that Aquino won the fight. I've also felt their humility and they believe that since the issue was done decades ago it is the right time for them to show their concern and respect to their opponents.

I am so happy that the Aquino family welcome the Marcos siblings on the wake of the late President.Hoping for a reconciliation for this two political family and it can be good example for filipinos especially to our griddy politicians.

It will really be difficult for the family of aquino to accept the marcoses as of the moment because they are the first generation so probably the second generation of aquinos who are their grandchildren who faced them. but at least it has been quiet and civil as they accept them. only time will know when will these two families heal the wounds.
