‘Yellow Ladies’ walks for ‘Noynoy’

Original Story:

Hundred of ladies, and their friends, Sunday donned their yellow shirts and dresses, accentuated by yellow pins, yellow baller IDs, and yellow stickers on their bags, and braved the busy streets of the country’s central business district despite the unpredictable weather to show their support for Libreal Party (LP) presidentiable Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.

“We do this to show the Philippines that we are all-out in our support for Noynoy,” said Polly Penson Aquino, one of the “Yellow Ladies.”

The Yellow Ladies, also known as Noynoy’s “prayer warriors,” come from different walks of life. They are doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, and even beauty queens. But despite their different backgrounds, they are united as volunteers at the LP headquarters, doing odd jobs as cutting out yellow ribbons to handling message bulletins, basically doing everything they could to help with LP campaign.

“We do this for love of country,” explained Polly. “Noynoy is the candidate with the most moral strength.

Now that corruption is at its worst in the country, what we sorely need is someone who has integrity and will not subject our country to more alleged corruption.”

The Yellow Ladies get together every Thursday to pray for a clean election, and a representative from their group will do a thousand Hail Mary’s each week.

Their walk in Makati consisted of four groups which would all converge on the Ninoy Aquino Monument. They proudly showed their “L” signs to passing motorists and vehicles, not to mention pedestrians.
