With Noynoy’s political campaign, the original meaning and substance of the yellow ribbons are almost lost. It has become a symbol of Noynoy running for president. He is not his parenats. He is neither Ninoy in the making nor a Cory in the making. Corruption was not the only issue they fought for.
To help revive the original meaning of the yellow ribbon, I want to place it side by side with a green or orange ribbon. I believe that the ideals of the original heroes in Ninoy and Cory is not just Noynoy’s, but of every presidential candidate. Ninoy and Cory are not of Noynoy’s alone. Ninoy and Cory are of the people. No one, then, should question if they find a G1bo sticker on my car beside a yellow ribbon. You should proudly do the same.
