I went to the White Vote movement launch last night at AMVEL City all the way in Paranaque. We got there by about 4 and went straight to the preparation area. It really slipped my mind to wear a white shirt! I blame my cough. I brought one, which was kind of small on me and I was going to have it changed, but when we got there things were in full swing already… so I just asked for a white shirt from the White Vote people. It was kind of see-through. LOL.
We got onstage and it was a good place to be. Sitting with that awesome view. All those people! 500,000+ according to some media outlets. That, to me, is an amazing crowd. Here I am with my friends, the three emcees, Cocoi, Pat and Joseph:

He explained why we need this White Vote. And even amidst the attacks, we need to come together and fight together for the family and for life:
The six candidates were endorsed: JV Estrada, Gringo Honasan, Koko Pimentel, Mitos Magsaysay, Sonny Trillanes and Cynthia Villar! Just 6? CFC FFL has three more! After that there was the candle lighting ceremony. And here we are:
And here they are:
Amazing. White vote. It’s real.
