Ninoy Aquino Day

Today, is a specially non-working holiday in commemorating the assisination of the late Sen Benigno Ninoy Aquino at the Manila International Airport (later renamed in his honor) upon returning home from exile in the United States. He is called as a hero to the Filipinos as he is known to be the only senator who is vocal in opposing the dictatorship regime of late President Ferdinand Marcos.

The family is requesting all the Filipinos to wear something that is yellow to commemorate this event. I my self will wear a yellow blouse later today when I go to downtown.
