CLAPPING HANDS: Thought this only applies on chanting and cheering crowds ....

I was wrong in understanding that clapping of our hands only applies on chanting and cheering crowds in joyous occasions. What I saw in live telecast of burial of Pres. Corazon Aquino at the church, all the people were clapping their hands. I was wrong in my thinking as if they were glad that Madame Cory were already dead... Are you thinking same what I thought?...

If you happened to watch the coverage up to the bringing out of her coffin, you will just be amazed that people stand, clapped and cheered. That's how deep they appreciate this person who will always be remembered as a woman of faith, courage, integrity and humility. Yes, she might have made all the best decisions when she is the president of the Philippines but no one can ever accuse her of using her position for her personal agenda. And that's one rare thing you can find in our politicians nowadays.

I agree with you on that note. She was indeed like us human that committed mistakes along her way but when it comes to being power hungry she never became one and showed a real leader in her time.
