Two Moms, One Morning

Last week, the Philippines mourned the loss of one of its most loved mothers. An icon, a revered proponent of democracy. Former President Cory Aquino.

The morning after her death, the view outside, from room 1116, where I spent midnight onwards showed me this...

But inside the said room and in the midst of the fuss about Tita Cory's passing, I was having my share of what I would call "mom scare." Unlike the Aquino's I am not ready to lose my mom just yet. Well, I am not ready to lose anyone again for that matter.

I wish I could command the universe when I say that mommy's gonna be fine. I wish. After all, I love my mom. And she need not be sick for me to realize it.
