"Pink Ribbon is internationally recognized as a symbol for Breast Cancer Awareness. Those who wear pink ribbon signify their support for everyone who is battling the big C. October happens to be breast cancer awareness month.
Leni Robredo just dragged this symbol into political mud. She is ruining the pink ribbon. What used to be an emblem of support and hope will now be viewed as a sign of dirty politics. Those who wear them in her political circle only have their personal political interest at heart. They will never think that what they are wearing is for those who have silently fought breast cancer.
In the years to come, pink ribbon will be hated as much as the infamous yellow ribbon of the Aquinos. Yellow ribbon used to be (and still is) a symbol of support for those who have battled/are battling bone cancer, and for the adopted children. Back in the day, family members tie a yellow ribbon in their porches and trees outside their home in the hope that their loved ones who are sent to war will come back safely. But not everyone knows this now, especially in the Philippines. The Aquinos and Liberal Party made sure that the yellow ribbon is all about them.
They totally destroyed the yellow ribbon. Now that the “yellow magic” is gone, they think changing colors will fit into their political agenda. But the truth is, they are just going to take the pink ribbon down the septic tank with them." -Jan Nica Nabor Macabacyao
