Yes I did and I seated almost whole day in front of Television just to watch the funeral procession of the late president. I also admired the former president's immeasurable strength and devotion to our mother land and always inspired with her unique character and noble purpose for the Philippines. The least I could do is pay respect by watching her final journey.

I guess every citizen of the country glued to their TV sets and watched as we laid to rest a person of great moral values, an icon of democracy. What transpired yesterday was something that we should preserve for posterity. This will be history for us. This will be in the books of the Philippine Democracy and something like that should be witnessed by every citizen.

I do agree, the whole event was really historical. I was deeply touched by Kris Aquino's final message to her mother. I felt her loneliness and her feeling of loss, because all people know how much her mother took care of her and always protected her from all her troubles and problems. It was heart-wrenching knowing Kris's attachment to her mother.

I was touched with Kris Aquino's final goodbye to her mother. I was aware how she always comforted by President Cory when she got into trouble, with her mother's passing Kris lost someone who had been her protector.

I guess we were all glued to it since the weather was not fairing well we opted to watch it on TV instead of going out. The event was very emotionally intense from the sermons to the farewell speech of her children till the final ceremony held in the cemetery where her body was laid to rest. I cannot but feel sad seeing this rolled through our history. I also saw some strange things like the sudden downpour then after it would stop when a certain rites has to be done. It was kind of amazing to see that it was like the heavens were cooperating with her.

I got glued too. I felt it was my fitting tribute to a person who had given the supreme sacrifice for us. It was also a learning moment about many things... the duty and loyalty of the armed forces, the responsibility of the clergy, the voice of the people whether rich or poor, and most importantly, the strength we gather in each one of us simply by loving.

Yes, I did! I began watching on TV the moment I woke up till a little after lunch. After lunch we went out to wait for the cortege to pass by our subdivision along South Super Highway. I did not expect to get a good vantage point from a roof deck that is why I was sorry I did not bring along a camera and I could not use my phone's camera because it had a weak battery at that time. I still can't believe that I failed to have my personal record of a historical event as it happened before my eyes.

Yes I did, I was glued on my chair in front of the TV and I was crying the whole time. It's so touching. Another glorious day in the history of the country. I just hope the magic lives on, and people don't forget the ideals of these wonderful couple (Ninoy and Cory) and make a sound decision in choosing the next leaders.
