Sr. M. Victoria Joson RGS remembers vividly 1986 EDSA. At the community room, she posted pictures taken during the days at EDSA, when there were no flyovers, no MRT yet. Asked to write her experience, she obliged:

"Four days of thrills, no fears. Tanks before an unarmed people, a first in the world. Religious statues and food in every nook and corner. Is this what you call a revolution? 32 years after, what went wrong?"
