Goodbye, Pres. Cory

Last night, we went to the wake of former president Cory Aquino. Met up with friends at Starbucks Temple Drive before heading to La Salle Greenhills in time to hear the 8pm mass being held inside the LSGH gymnasium.

During mass and long afterward, looking around the room, I couldn't help but be amazed. She truly was one of those great individuals who has touched the hearts and lives of so many.

I love when the priest half jokingly said that, President Cory has the power to bring people together, the ability to bring both Jesuits and La Salle brothers to hold mass together in her honor. It goes beyond silly La Salle-Ateneo 'rivalries' of course and THAT is what makes it truly inspiring.
