My husband and I attended the Ateneo de Manila University's Ignatian Festival last Saturday, which was keynoted by the president of the Philippines, Benigno S. Aquino III, an alumnus of the university.
The only other person on the stage during the opening talks was the university president, Fr. Jose Ramon T. Villarin SJ.
It is widely known that President Aquino is not a morning person, so I
guess it shouldn't have irritated us that he was 40 minutes late.
