Paint UP Diliman Yellow!

I was on the Philcoa Jeep going inside UP when I noticed that every tree has a yellow ribbon on it. It was magical.

The UP School of Economics Student Council asked its students to observe "Yellow Tuesday" - to wear yellow for Former President Cory Aquino. The day before last Tuesday, I made a viral message in the internet and to my social networks asking everyone to paint UP Diliman yellow , by wearing anything yellow or a yellow ribbon on them. I said in my message, "UP DILIMAN: Padilawin ang UP bukas! Wear YELLOW shirts, or yellow ribbon. Para kay Pangulong Cory! Pls Pass."

I wasn't sure people would do it. Next day came, although we didn't paint the whole of UP yellow, a lot of the students wore yellow or had ribbons on them. We got everyone's attention, and that's what matters.


*I will post my final post on Volunteerism and Cory Aquino experience when I return from Visayas.
