In Remembrance of Cory

She was no hero for me... but she was an inspiration not just for me, but for all Filipinos out there. She is nonetheless,the late President Cory Aquino (Real Name: María Corazón Sumulong Cojuangco)... the one who stood up before a tyrant.. who became known because of her title as the First Woman President of the Philippines and who started the Edsa Revolution.

Cory Aquino for me is an inspiration, because if it weren't for her, the Philippines would probably still be in the rule of the Marcoses and she just did what's right. Though it is not her job to take over the role played by her husband in the world of politics, given the chance, she took it-- believing that she will make a change... a difference to the Filipino people.

Before, when her husband (Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino) was still alive, she only played the role of a mother and a housewife... never sharing with her husband's limelight. But when he was assassinated, Cory had a chance..and she took it, not as revenge, but to use that chance to be a voice, a light, and a guide for the Filipino people who were at that time, chained by fear.

Despite her shortcomings in her administration, I still look up to her because unlike President Gloria Arroyo, when she had her last SONA, she gave it up fully... because she believes that there are a lot others who deserve a chance in changing this country... and that one day, there would come a time when a great leader will come.

Born on January 25, 1933 and finally died on August 1, 2009 at the age of 79 of cardio-respiratory arrest at exactly 3:18 a.m., saturday at the Makati Medical Center. (source:

We will always remember you... your legacy... and we hope that soon, you'll be together with your beloved husband, Ninoy in the Kingdom of God.
