The four Cory honor guards who stood faithfully for more than eight hours beside the casket of President Cory Aquino whom TIME Magazine has dubbed as "The Saint of Democracy," had a wish — to meet in person Cory's kids — and it came true yesterday through GMA 7's Wish Ko Lang program.
Vicky Morales accompanied the four officers to the house of Cory daughter Pinky Aquino-Abellada for a get-together dinner. According to Vicky, the meeting between Cory's kids and Cory's honor guards will be shown in full on Saturday, August 15.
This is the same meeting that ABS-CBN will feature in tonight's edition of SNN (Showbiz News Ngayon).
