Yesterday, Pres. Cory Aquino was laid to her final rest. She was an icon of democracy here in the Philippines. She was also the first female President of the Philippines as well as the first female President in the whole Asia.

During the 1980's, Cory Aquino was associated with the yellow color. This color was used to fight against the dictator of the country during that time. Yellow became a symbol of revolution for all Filipinos. At the time of her death, people used this color (again) to show their gratefulness for all the things that she have sacrificed for the country.
