i'm glad my scramblings paid off, was able to join the Ateneo contingent who happened to have shuttle buses to take us to the Manila Cathedral for the funeral mass. we also managed to secure tickets so we could enter the church and witness everything that took place during the mass.
the experience was truly overwhelming. i couldn't help but shed tears for the loss but tears of inexplicable joy were also shed for that privelege of having known such a great person in this lifetime.�
Salamat, Tita Cory for reminding us how great it is to be a Filipino!
