I had just woke up this morning when I heard our radio in its full volume. It was Senator Noynoy Aquino. I knew it. Corazon Aquino is finally with our Creator. She died at 3:18 AM of cardio-respiratory arrest presumably a complication of her colon cancer.
Isn't it a coincidence that she died on the same month her husband Ninoy Aquino died (August 21)?
Things happened so fast. It was only last night when I was watching her last SONA and historic speech in the US Congress and some memorable speeches by her late husband. I was planning to make a post about their speeches which are indeed fiery and full of nationalism, patriotism and sincerity.
I guess, she had fulfilled her mission. It is now time for our dear Corazon Aquino, the icon of Philippine Democracy and the epitome of a true politician to be with our Creator and be with her husband who is waiting for her to come home.
Some may still berate her for not doing some things that she should have done, but giving us back our freedom and democracy is more than enough for us to be thankful to her.
Corazon Aquino. 1933-2009. Former President. Icon of Philippine Democracy. A hero. A mother.
