    Although I don't like some of her decisions (releasing the rebels en masse without reviewing their cases); and what she did to Negros Occidental (declaring the sugar industry a dying industry while visiting Bacolod; and declaring it dead a few hours later when she was in Iloilo), I would still pray for her.

    She's just human after all.

    The most valuable thing I learned from her is humility.

    If it was found during a routine colonoscopy, it can be resected. If it was found out because she showed signs/symptoms, then 9 times out of 10, it is too late!!!!

    not all the time. my mother was diagnosed 1989. she passed away 1993. she was 49 then. she went through numerous operations, chemo, cobalt, pilgrimage to lourdes and fatima. she weighed only 50lbs. more or less when she died. colon cancer is not quick. lung cancer is quicker. but i heard it takes longer when the patient is older.

    will pray for her too... promise talaga... will include her in my daily evening prayers...
     
  10. Things I can remember during her stint as the President of the country:
    - the beginning of 8-10 hour blackouts
    - Mayors and governors being ousted by Pimentel left and right, only to be re-elected back to their posts
    - the vice president carrying a golden gun thru NAIA
    - high hopes for the PCGG to recover Marcos loot (nothing happened, almost all cases dropped or were overturned)
    - Coup-coup-ruop-coup-coup.... parang tilaok ng manok
    - Baguio quake (di nya ito kasalanan, pero kung si GMA...) and the Pinatubo explosion
    - balimbing mentality pervaded the political landscape
    - crafting of Family code, the 1987 constitution
    - Nobel peace prize nominee nga pala sya
    - expulsion of the US military
    and many other important events I couldn't remember anymore...

    She has led us through interesting times, and with the Lord's blessing may continue to lead us still, albeit in a moral capacity, through current turmoils. I pray she fares well in this, her latest challenge.

    she was the most beloved of the post marcos presidents, specially by the generation who helped topple the dictatorship.

    she will be dearly missed.

    Iyon na lang sanang isa na makapal ang mukha ang dapat kinukuha ni kalawit.
