To deepen our thinking, we underwent a process to discuss the theme in length, inviting Rapa Lopa (who would eventually be a speaker), Lino Rivera, and former WhyNot? speaker Floy Quintos to brainstorm.
Rapa Lopa - Executive Director of the Benigno Aquino Foundation, Chairman of MicroVentures, and Executive Assistant to as well as nephew of President Corazon Cojuangco Aquino - became an emotional high-point for the forum.
With his beloved Auntie Cory's passing just a few weeks earlier - an event that would dramatically envelop the whole Philippines in mourning, respect, and love - Rapa shared his thoughts and reflections on her life. Rapa talks about his belief that the story of Tita Cory is interwoven with the story of his Tito Ninoy; In fact, it's not just any story, but rather a very powerful and moving love story.
As Rapa asked early on in his talk : Is the Filipino Worth Living and Dying For? And the lives of his uncle and his aunt were testaments that the answer is a resounding yes.
He then shares how working with his Tita Cory has moved him into working for a better country, and that has shaped the people he has chosen to work with today; MicroVentures, a microfinancing business development services company working with the poorest of the poor; iamninoy runners; Philippine Stagers Association (for Ako Si Ninoy musical); and his efforts on "giving multiplied" - harnessing the power of the internet to find help for those who need it.
With a solemn silence not heard since Mr. Pagsi's talk in WhyNot?Forum 3.0, Rapa then ends by asking young children from the audience what their dreams were, what they wanted to be when they grew up.
