Cory Aquino Now Belongs To The Ages
I cried when I heard that Cory Aquino has died. The last time I cried before that was upon hearing the news that she was rushed to the hospital during her valiant battle against colon cancer. It’s only now that I realized that I loved her because she meant so much to me. She was the mother I never had. Cory Aquino is the embodiment of goodness and truth. Am I being subjective because of my grief? Just look at the noble life she led – it speaks for itself. Honesty has characterized her life, more so her reign as President, which was a time of unprecedented transparency and accountability. We, the people who know a good person when we see one, will never forget her – and will continually fight for the ideals for which she gave her last full measure of devotion.
