Philippines in Mourn.. Thank you Tita Cory...

I was still at work when the news broke. Former President Corazon C. Aquino died this morning 3:18am PST at the Makati Medical Center. She died at her sleep due to cardio-respiratory arrest. She is battling colon cancer for 1 year and 4 months. Her remains will be brought to Heritage Park and funeral service in La Salle Greenhills. Another icon died this year. Let us pray for her. It is a sad morning here in the Philippines. May our former president Cory rest in peace and rejoin her late husband Benigno "Ninoy" Aguino. This August 21 is the death anniversary of Ninoy.

Former President Cory Aquino led the people of the Philippines to democracy in the Edsa People Power Revolution in 1986. I was only a kid at that time and I remembered I was jumping for joy because it was declared no classes at that time. I was not aware of the events during those times. She was a symbol of hope during her time as the president of the Philippines. Color Yellow is her trade mark with the "L" sign or Laban sign . Up to her last strength, she showed the people that she cares for the country and her faith gave her strength. She is the very first woman president not only in the Philippines but in the whole Asia. And she changed the Philippine Constitution of 1987 and the start of democracy in the Philippine after the Marcos regime. February 25, 1986, Cory Aquino pledged as the first woman president of the Philippines. Her term as the president lasted until 1993. Let us pay tribute to Tita Cory by remembering what she did for our country, her contribution and faith. My condolences to the Cojuangco and Aquino Family.

My grandmother, mother of my father, died too because of colon cancer in August 30, 2002. It was a year and 7 months battle for my grandmother. She too died in her sleep. I'm not bragging, but, my late grandmother almost looks-like the late Tita Cory.

As of 7:45am, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo who is currently at Washington D.C. for her visit to President Barrack Obama, gave her message on national television for the late former President Cory Aquino. She said that, Cory Aquino is the leader of Filipino Democracy. Also President Gloria declared a 10 day period of National Mourning.

with all the loving prayers of Filipino people since the time her family announced her health condition... i faithfully agree that she died peacefully and she for sure will rest in peace with our good Lord for she was an adorable child of God who became an instrument in reminding people how powerful it is to have faith in God in all walks of life.
