Today, the first day of August in the year 2009, former President Corazon Aquino passed away. President Cory breathed her last at around 3:18 a.m. It’s a few days short of the death anniversary of President Cory’s, former Senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, Jr., who was assassinated on 21 August 1983.
Our heartfelt condolences to the family of President Cory. We share the pain of those who admire and love her — a President and a simple citizen Cory.
Thank you for being with the Filipino people in their times of struggle. Thank you for being a moral force that served, and will hopefully still serve, as a beacon in times of darkness.
You are an inspiration.
You will be sorely missed.
