It is a sad day for the Philippines as one of its famous people, ex President Cory Aquino passed away at age 76. She had been diagnosed with colon cancer. I am sure all Filipinos are mourning for her and her family. She was the first female Filipino president who was famous for having led a military backed popular revolt in 1986 that ousted a dictator who ruled the country for 20 years dubbed People Power.
Cory Aquino, widow of Senator Benigno Aquino Jr., will be remembered as an icon of democracy. My prayers are with Cory and her family. May you rest in peace.
