A Singular Act Of Statesmanship: Gloria’s Visit To Cory’s Wake

August 5, 2009

GMA AT CORY WAKE 2

ABS-CBN has just aired the images this oftentimes jaded writer only half expected to see: President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo standing over the open casket of late former President Cory Aquino and possibly saying a silent prayer.

Mrs. Arroyo went to the Manila Cathedral straight from the airport having just arrived from her visit to the U.S.

I salute you, Mrs. President for this singular act of statesmanship.

Kudos, too, Senator Noynoy Aquino for welcoming President Arroyo.

That gesture can go a long way to help heal the political divide between your clans, and perhaps, our people.
