Honoring the Honor Guards

People may think that being honor guards for an important person’s funeral is an easy task, as it only requires being able to stay by the coffin until the body is laid to rest.

Pfc. Antonio Cadiente, Airman 2nd Class Gener Laguindam, Petty Officer 3 Edgardo Rodriguez and PO1 Danilo Maalab, each representing the 3 branches of the Philippine Armed Forces (Philippine Navy, Philippine Army and Philippine Air Force) and the Philippine National Police, stood at attention for more than nine hours, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m last Wednesday, as the cortege made its way to Mrs. Aquino’s final destination.

They didn’t move an inch – not to rest their numbing legs, to answer the call of nature nor to nourish themselves with food.

Goodbye, Inspiration

When the final moment does come
Let not my loved ones grieve for long.
Let them comfort each other
And let them know
how much happiness
They brought into my life.

– Mrs. Cory Aquino’s Prayer
