It is really interesting to read something like this. And as someone who is not born yet during those times, I found the story touching and easier to understand through this. This article can really help those people understand what really happened during the People Power Revolution with ease. For those people who are not into reading, and hates the History subject, this article could help you know what happened in the People Power in just a few minutes. As I was reading everything, I felt like crying and felt the goosebumps all over my body. I could feel the tense, the emotion, the sincerity of the event. NO jokes, or just words to impress, but I finally understand more and easily what happened during People Power revolution. I felt the tense and the emotions. Everything. It felt like it is really happening right now. I hope you would read this article and find some time to read everything, it’s only less than 5 minutes and you can finally get the gist of the event, feel the emotion and finally understand what it feels like to be a Filipino.  :yipee:

    very nicely done. the thoughts in the posts are provocative, at least in the pondering minds. But, yes, hilarious humor too.
