The Lost Yellow Ribbon

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.

    In the end, it made me realized that there’s no bias of wearing a yellow ribbon after all. Somehow, LP has “over used” it making it seem exclusively of the Aquinos. Seems like we lost the real meaning of it.

    I saw it evidently most especially in Tarlac when we passed by the big area in Luisita (which makes me think why they question c5).Sure, the yellow ribbons are there, perhaps in the memory of Cory but somewhere in there are tarps of Noy and Mar.

    Haay, thanks for reminding me Trish, ” 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.”

    I just hope and pray that people will make the right decision. I’m impress with how Villar prepared for this campaign. He is an entrepreneurial leader.

    Goodluck to you and the rest of the volunteers!
