Ask Mindy


"What's up Miss Mindy? Since it is the first death anniversary of the late beloved President Corazon Aquino, I would like to know the origin of the term “Cory Magic,” which is believed to have sparked the EDSA revolution. -Andi"


Hi Andi! I'm doing fine here at Wikipilipinas. Regarding your question, Father Catalino Arevalo of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines described Corazon Aquino as having a “will of steel” in calling for civil disobedience against the Marcos administration, but nonetheless displayed no “fuzz, fret or fury” when she led the EDSA People Power revolt. These remarkable characteristics of Tita Cory are believed to have inspired the people to topple the Marcos regime—thus, the term “Cory Magic.” You may read this to know more about her legacy.
