Good Bye And Thank You

Ma’am Imelda of My Overview told me about the death of our former President Corazon Cojuangco Aquino after battling a colon cancer. I felt sad but at the same time happy because she is now with our creator where she can’t feel any pain.
“Our mother peacefully passed away at 3:18 am of cardio-respiratory arrest” – Senator Benigno Aquino Jr.

Her son Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III confirmed that Former President Corazon Cojuangco Aquino died of cardio respiratory arrest at exactly 3:18 a.m. Saturday at the Makati Medical Center after battling colon cancer for more than a year. She was 76 years old.

Corazon "Cory"Cojuangco Aquino was born on January 25, 1933 is the Seventh and First Female President of the Republic of the Philippines. She took the Presidency by the Controversial "Power of the People" which ended the 20 years of Marcos Regime.
The EDSA Revolution and the Peaceful People Power happened in the Philippines 23 years ago and the former president is the symbol of Freedom. I was in elementary when this political chaos was felt through out the nation. She has done a lot of good things for the country and although she was not in politics and choice to be a private person she still visible when it come for the betterment of the country.
Before I hit the publish button of this post I want to say THANK YOU for the democracy that you’ve given to us. Surely the Filipino people will not forget you.
