The People Power President

Remembering the February 25, 1986 EDSA People Power  Revolution that propelled President Corazon Aquino into power. That's us with then Malaya newspaper editor Joe Burgos (next to Cory) at the Malacanang Palace. We were young, idealistic journalists from the defunct Philippines Daily Express newspaper. And 25 years hence , my ever generous friend Ambeth Ocampo (to my left)  became the eminent Philippine Historian/Esteemed Academic that he is now-- and yours truly, still draws for a living :)
