cory aquino’s remains were brought through ayala avenue from la salle greenhills in san juan on its way to the manila cathedral. with yellow confetti raining on the huge crowd and chants of “cory! cory!” ringing, it was reminiscent of the people power revolution when cory went on the same avenue to the same triumphant support of the ayala avenue crowd.

Mrs. Aquino came to power through what amounted to popular acclaim — she called it “people power” — expressed by huge crowds that gathered in support of her. Her popularity reached its peak during her presidential campaign against Mr. Marcos in January 1986, when she was surrounded by enthusiastic crowds chanting, “Cory! Cory! Cory!’”
