My Tribute to Former President Corazon Aquino

Cory Aquino

I was still a child when Cory Aquino took over as the president of the Philippines. She was the symbol of hope and freedom from the oppressors of democracy. I grew up with a great gratitude because I was not able to grow up with the tyrannical regime.

Today, she passed away at the age of 76 years old because of some health complications. Our President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo declared a 10-day official mourning for her.

As a tribute to an outstanding woman and mother, I am showing support by putting a yellow ribbon at my blog.

Former President Corazon Aguino, may your soul find solace in the arms of our Creator!

  1. so sad gid ya mommy. she was such a fighter for democracy. i wonder if someone will rise up like her. no fear. and after all, she has resources man. many people have courage, too, but sometimes, because of the needs of their family, they get swayed by money. sadly, her children are not that passionate.

  2. I am an ex-convict, a former notorious criminal who had been incarcerated for 19 long years for multiple crimes ranging from Murder, Frustrated Murder, Three Counts Robbery Hold-up and two counts Evasion of Sentence or Escape.I was a Maximum-Security Prisoner, classified among the hardened convicts and tagged as a prison gang boss and escape artist. But during the 5th year of my 47 years Definite sentence, I surrendered my life to God and began to change. I eventually became a popular Christian singer-songwriter and recording artist. My 2 best selling albums were produced while I was still in prison then in 1991 PRESIDENT CORAZON C. AQUINO GRANTED ME AN EXECUTIVE CLEMENCY IN THE FORM OF CONDITIONAL PARDON. It was a MIRACLE because with my badly smeared prison record, I was not qualified for any executive clemency. The termination of my sentence was supposedly in 2006 but I was released IN 1991 AND SO MY FREEDOM CAME 15 YEARS AHEAD OF TIME. President Cory had been God’s instrument in setting me free so I could fulfill the great mission that God had planned for my life. From 1991 up to the present I have been traveling nationwide and abroad preaching God’s love and mercy and singing my songs of testimonies in street crusades, prisons and jails, rehab centers and home for the street children. I have been speaking in National High Schools and universities about Christian values and the drug menace and destructive fraternities and street gangs. I have toured in 21 countries and more than 80 cities in different parts of the world, mostly in Europe reaching the Filipinos with my life testimony and songs and challenging them to bring pride and honor to our country by being good OCWs. This has been a long testimonial tribute to the President who granted me pardon and gave me not only my physical freedom but the freedom, the privilege and the honor to be an ambassador of the Lord Jesus Christ throughout our country and even in so many countries abroad.My beloved President you are indeed God’s intrument in bringing different kinds of freedom in our country and I am so blessed that I had been a very special recipient of your compassion to an outcast of society. The freedom you gave me brought me back to the mainstream of society with a phenomenal story of a succesful ex-convict. I have been crying as I watched the TV coverage of your funeral wake at the Manila Cathedral and the great funeral convoy bound for the Manila Memorial Park until you were finally laid to rest beside Ninoy”s tomb. I was so sorry that I have been sick for a long time and could not join the hundreds of thousands who joined the procession. If the ordinary Filipino who have witnessed your great achievement to our history cried for you, then much more did I because I have personally experienced your greatness.I have been however giving tribute to your goodness because everytime I share the story of my miraculous release from prison I always mention the pardon that you have given me. You shall be continuously part of my evangelistic ministry….I love you Cory….God bless your soul!!

  3. I hope and pray that the Aquino siblings will be abundantly bless by the LOrd as they have been left behind by their great parents. I dont if Kris will still remember me when she guested me in her program , Today With Kris several months after I was given pardon by her great mom.
