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!
