A Salute to Corazon Aquino
Let's all pause for a moment as the person who brought democracy back to our country has passed away this morning.
“Former President Corazon Cojuangco Aquino has passed away. She was 76. Her son Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III confirmed that she died of cardio respiratory arrest at exactly 3:18 a.m. Saturday at the Makati Medical Center. Mrs. Aquino has been diagnosed with colon cancer early in 2008 and has been confined at the Makati Medical Center for more than a month. Mrs. Aquino, widow of Senator Benigno Aquino Jr., will be remembered as an icon of democracy, having led a military-backed popular revolt in 1986 that ousted a dictator who ruled the country for 20 years.”
We won't be able to write this if it wasn't for President Cory. We owe her our freedom. Rest in peace President Maria Corazon "Cory" Cojuangco Aquino and thank you for everything.
