Death of Former President "Cory Aquino"

I was really saddened and devastated when I got the news that Former President Corazon "Cory" Aquino passed away last saturday Aug 1, 2009 at about 3:18 am. We all prayed for her wellness and I'm sure it's God's will that she has joined her husband and our Creator.

We all know that Cory Aquino gave all the Filipino people the courage, hope and most importantly play a big role in restoring back our democracy and freedom by leading the EDSA People Power I.

I was in my grade school when that People Power happened. As a kid I'm not that knowledgeable about what is happening in the country but I can feel the tension, the fear and worries of my parents especially that exact date is the departure of my father going to Palau or Guam. But when we are going home in Manila coming from (MIA) Manila International Airport, when we are nearing our place not so far from Malacanang Palace, I can see a lot of armies, navy, police patrols, tankers and tora-tora flying around, barricades on the streets, right that very moment I told my mother.."Is there a WAR"??? And that's the time I begun to be curious and concern on what is going on...get to know who is "Cory Aquino" and finally found myself attending prayer rallies and being nationalistic. Up to now I can still recall all that "Magkaisa" song, "Handog ng Pilipino sa Mundo", "Ang Bayan Ko" and more.

After all the tensions and People Power ousted the Marcoses, it's really a sweet and fulfilling victory for all the Filipino people.
The very first time that I personally saw "Tita Cory" face to face and the rest of Aquino clan when we attended the Thanksgiving Rally in Luneta and more other prayer rallies after that.

Former President "Cory Aquino" is such a very compassionate woman inside and out, so dedicated to her responsibility as a president, she made every Filipino free, united and proud anywhere she goes. Before she's known as a loving, kind and patient wife of Ninoy and a loving mom, friend and a shoulder to cry on for her children, same thing that she showed to the entire Filipino people.

Eventhough she has to battle with her cancer she never fails to worry more on her children, grandchildren and her fellow filipinos and her country. She really has a strong believed in God and prayer power.

Up to her death she brought the Filipino people united once again, the same way that the Filipino people showed their love and respect to the late Former President. The whole country mourned when she passed away but we saw the support of all the people lining up to bid their last farewell to our beloved Tita Cory and joining hand in hand to brought her at Manila Memorial last wednesday. No rain or other obstacle can prevent the outpouring support and love of all the Filipinos just to show how thankful are we for all the things and sacrifices she done for our country.

Now as she joined her husband Ninoy and our Creator in Heaven, we will surely missed her but rest assured that we will have a new guardian angel to guide us and lead us to a bright future.

You have lived your life fully. You have a great sense of pride in accomplishing your task and purpose here on earth and the only thing we can give you is to Thank You...Thank You "Tita Cory" for sharing with us your life, unconditional love, courage, dedication, humility, patience, understanding, integrity and great trust in God. May we continue to apply all the things that you've showed and taught us, that truly "Filipinos are worth fighting for" and most importantly give everything up to the Lord.

We will have a different bunch of President in the near future but we will only have ONE and ONLY simple, kind, meaningful and stain free of corruption and anomalies like you...President "Corazon C. Aquino"
