CORY AQUINO : The Mother of OUR Democracy

Corazon Cojuangco Aquino, the greatest mother for all Filipinos, a strong advocate of Peace and Democracy, an Icon for women empowerment.

She was the Philippine Republic's 11th President. The David that killed the dictatorship of Marcos in 1986. The widow of the late Senator and hero Senatro Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino Jr.

She was now dead die to cardio-pulmonary arrest after complications of her colon cancer. She was 76 years old.

Now the remains of the beloved former President is being seen at the various locations for public viewing. From La Salle Greenhills Gymnasium to the Manila Catheral where large numbers of Filipino people gather and reminiscing the moments that topple the dictator's regime.

All you can hear are the people's chant of Cory! Cory! Cory! till she was entered the Cathedral's lobby. From the scorching heat of the sun, the Filipinos brave to profess their love and respect for the former president of the Philippines.

Personally, I really admire the sincerity and the humbleness of President Aquino. I don't have any acquaintances nor recollection with her, but a mere advocacies of democracy and willingness to serve the people. I was moved by her death.

My heart is full of sorrow and I have been mourning her untimely death. For I believe she could have done many more things that could benefit the entire nation.

So long President Cory and Many Thanks for this DEMOCRACY AND FREEDOM that you have won for us.
