Many EDSAs

“I had always hoped and dreamed that we Filipinos could be more intensely nationalistic, and EDSA was it. Finally, Filipino people were identifying with all that’s good about the Filipino – the sharing of the food, the praying together, the kindness and support shown for everybody, the total giving of oneself.­ I don’t want that changed. In fact I want many EDSAs to happen — although I don’t think that’s possible, it was one of a kind — or at least for us to learn the lessons of EDSA.

Dear Tita Cory: I have good news and bad news on your dalawang hiling for many EDSAs and lessons learned. Hulaan niyo na lang po kung alin ang alin.
