Maraming Salamat President Cory Aquino!!!


Yeah, the Former Philippine President Maria Corazon "Cory" Cojuangco Aquino passed this morning around 3:18 AM.

According to Wikipedia

Aquino died of cardiopulmonary arrest after complications of colon cancer at the age of 76 on August 1, 2009, 3:18 a.m., at the Makati Medical Center. Aquino was diagnosed with the disease in March 2008 but kept up public appearances this year. A devout Catholic, she was a regular at weekend mass until shortly before being admitted to hospital in late June. Aquino was the first female president of the Republic of the Philippines to die up to date.

"Our mother peacefully passed away at 3:18 a.m. (1918 GMT Friday) of cardio-respiratory arrest," her son, Senator Benigno Aquino III, told reporters in Manila.

All Roman Catholic dioceses had started requiem masses for Aquino, after they held "healing masses". Meanwhile, the government declared a week of mourning for her death. Former President Estrada said that lost a "mother" and a "guiding voice of the people." Aquino supported Estrada's removal from office in 2001, but the two supported each other to oppose amendments in the constitution since last year. The Senate has also expressed its grieving with Aquino's death; Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, who along with Fidel Ramos launched the People Power Revolution, asked the public to pray for her. Minority leader Aquilino Pimentel served as interior and local government secretary during her administration had "mixed feelings" with Aquino's passing, saying "We shall be forever indebted to Cory for rallying the nation behind the campaign to topple dictatorial rule and restore democracy."

Salamat President Cory Aquino for being a great leader, for being a great mother to your children especially to Kris Aquino, and thank you for being our symbol of hope. You are a fighter, hindi ka natatakot at napapagod na ipaglaban ang ating demokrasya.

Thank you dahil may demokrasya ang bansang ito. Ang blogging ay isang uri ng demokrasya at kung hindi dahil sa inyo wala ang blog ito. Salamat at naipapahayag namin ang aming saloobin.

Muli Salamat.

You may rest in peace!!!

Condolence to the family and friends of President Aquino.
