Touch a blogger: Tie a yellow ribbon for Cory Aquino!

by reynz on July 23, 2009


My fellow bloggers, I invite you to Touch a blogger: Tie a yellow ribbon for Cory Aquino! Very simply:

  1. Create an entry entitled: Touch a blogger: Tie a yellow ribbon for Cory Aquino!. A link to this original entry will be appreciated, but is not required.
  2. Post a yellow ribbon in your blog for President Cory Aquino. Whatever form of yellow ribbon that your creative imagination can come up with.
  3. Invite other bloggers to tie a yellow ribbon for Cory.

President Cory Aquino has done a lot for us Filipinos. She’s suffered more than enough. I might not agree with some of the things that she has done but that is beside the point. My respect is unconditional and I will thank this great woman for the biggest and most valuable gift that she has given us Filipinos – giving back our freedom and liberty. And as a blogger, there is not much that I can do, other than offer prayers for Cory Aquino.

With this, let’s show our love and respect for Cory through our blogs and I invite all the writers of Barrio Siete, readers and commenters to Tie a yellow ribbon for Cory Aquino!

Thank you!

~La Kapitana~

in any case, i hope you’ll agree that it’s the thought that counts. ribbons for Cory are now in and

thank you once again for this initiative. God bless Cory. God bless the Philippines.

โ€œTouch a blogger: Tie a yellow ribbon for Cory Aquino!โ€œ

“And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.”
James 5:15-16 (NIV)

Dear Lord,
You know Mrs. Aquino so much better than I do. You know her sickness and the burden she carries. You also know her heart. Lord, I ask you to be with her now, working in her life. Let your will be done in her life. If there is a sin that needs to be confessed and forgiven, Lord, please help her to see her need and confess. Lord, I pray for her because your Word says I should pray for her healing. I believe you hear this earnest prayer from my heart and that it is powerful because of your promise. I have faith in you to heal mrs. Aquino, but I also trust in the plan you have for her life. Lord, I don’t always understand your ways, and why she has to suffer, but I trust you. I ask that you look with mercy and grace towards her. Nourish her spirit and soul in this time of suffering and comfort her with Your presence. Let Mrs. Aquino know You are there with her through this difficulty. And may You be glorified in her life and also in mine.


Bukang Liwayway July 30, 2009 at 10:24 pm


I admire you so much. You as a person and most especially your achievements.

Malayo ang kalagayan ko sa iyo. Ikaw ay CPA, ako NPA (no permanent address).

Ikaw may MBA. Ako may LBM.

Hindi ko alam ‘yung paggawa ng yellow ribbon. Gusto kong sumali peroi hindi ko talaga alam. Pwede, dagdag mo na lang o kaya isabit mo na lang ako sa iyong pangalan nakatali ang yellow ribbon.

he he he heeeh!

I also pray for President Cory’s health.

Not being negative here but ….

This is LA KAPITANA. I deleted his comment because I was told that this guy was bloghopping and has been pasting the same comment all over. This is BAD SOCIAL CLIMBING people. You have to go to PRE (Pamantasan ni Reyna Elena) to learn the basics of Social Climbing.

Hi Reynz and to all the Barrio Sietezens,

This is an admirable campaign. Just like how Cory made us unite together, this act will evolve into something bigger. A call for a miracle. Setting aside our differences and kneeling down in prayer for our beloved Cory Aquino. This is a small request compared to the freedom and liberty that she has given back to us as a nation.

More power to Barrio Siete!



Roms July 31, 2009 at 4:07 pm

I have joined this crusade and I would like to add that at this point I think we should open out the idea about the sainthood of Madam Cory Aquino. She’s worthy to be one in addition of being a HEROINE!

Tita Cory, you are a Saint. We’ll miss you and when you get close
to Mama Mary, please pray for us that She (Mama Mary) will guide us
like you did. You are God sent. We love you!


Steph August 4, 2009 at 12:31 am

Hi! Posted the ribbon as a widget on my blog ( I can just leave it as a link to this site. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks!

I have to admit that I haven’t been blogging in a while… maybe this will be a good time to write again.

Mabuhay ang Pinoy! ๐Ÿ˜‰


reynz August 4, 2009 at 1:24 am


On the Web, thousands more grieve for Cory

โ€˜Virtualโ€™ yellow ribbon

One of the more popular images that came out since Mrs. Aquinoโ€™s medical condition became known was the virtual yellow ribbon, which started on July 23 by the blog forum Barrio Siete (

The call gathered steam in the following weeks as her condition worsened. Many users pasted the iconic yellow ribbon on their blogs and even on their pictures.


reynz August 4, 2009 at 1:26 am


Tweets and twibbons for Cory

The call for posting yellow ribbons online started with Reyna Elena of Barrio Siete ( on July 23, heeding the call of Aquino supporters to tie a yellow ribbon as a way of expressing support for the country’s first female president.

As of posting, Reyna Elena has linked 57 blog sites with yellow ribbons.


Emy Riguera August 4, 2009 at 2:10 am

Thank you Tita Cory for bringing us back democracy, freedom and liberty. Thank you for showing us what a president must be. You were honest and sincere. You did not enrich yourself while in power and willingly opted for the smooth transition of power at the end of your term.

You were the loving and caring ubiquitous mother and father (rolled into one) to Balsy, Viel, Pinky Noynoy and Kris. Despite the suffering your family endured, I understand that yours was a happy family.

As a person of deep faith, you taught us to cling to our faith in God in the midst of great trials, adversities and even in sickness. And as a Catholic, you inspired me to enrich my devotion to the Blessed Mother through the rosary. Mary is my all in a place where I am alone.

Rest in peace and continue to pray for the nation and people you immensely loved. So long and a fond goodbye; not farewell.


marco August 4, 2009 at 5:57 am

I modified my site as to make it yellow-themed. I love Cory so much because she helped restore democracy in our beloved land.


rache August 4, 2009 at 10:48 pm

i just did. thank you…


Ahra Madera August 5, 2009 at 7:27 am

Corazon Aquino
Many has been said of this lady, from being the mother of democracy and the lady with the kindest heart. I would like to say that I put my hands-up for Cory Aquino! Looking back at the life she had, from her husband`s incarceration and death, to her hard fought presidency and the cancer which took her from us. It bleeds my heart as well as makes me proud that despite all this hardship that she endured all throughout her life, she never faltered in her trust to God Almighty to Our Mama Mary!
Dakila ka Corazon Aquino!


Pauline August 6, 2009 at 1:08 am

She’s a great inspiration to all of us Filipinos. I feel proud to have her as one of our former president. Although cuz our generation wasn’t even born yet when she was elected as president, I’m thankful that she did what she had to do to restore and maintain the democracy in our Country. I tied a yellow ribbon for Cory Aquino as a sign of respect, recognition and gratitude for what she did.


Pauline August 6, 2009 at 1:10 am
Zee August 7, 2009 at 8:26 am

Oh I would love to be added to this list of course! In fact you can also automatically place your link on my blogroll of people who posted about Cory or placed a yellow ribbon on heir blogs! Just click the yellow ribbon on my blog and add your url. It will show up in seconds!



Pinaybackpacker August 8, 2009 at 5:09 am

To La Kapita and all the Barrio Siete Council members, thank you for coming up with this idea.

I hope this yellow ribbon will become a significant symbol for all of us. For me, it will be a constant reminder to cultivate in myself the same values the Tita Cory had : sincerity, respect, humility, an ardent desire to serve, and an undying faith in the Filipino people. Mabuhay tayong lahat. ๐Ÿ˜€
