Oh. I'm really sad with what happen to former President Cory Aquino. I just heard the news from my chatmates in the forum.. I'm really shock with what happened to her. I don't watch TV this past few days. And the last news I heard about her is that her condition is getting better. So I really can't believe with what happened to her.

It is a sad news at least she no longer suffering because of her illness. Her family also prepared themselves that this is going to happen. My condolences to her family and she will be now at peace. Her memories and her contribution to our society will stay forever.

i first got the news from my friend. she texted me and i was so sad to hear that news. she would be a total loss in our Philippine government. she has been here always helping and inspiring us all Filippinos to fight for what we think is right and not to step on other peoples rights and be strong for whatever trials and outcomes our government may give us. she will truly be remembered forever and she will be here in our hearts until the end. jhelai

Its always a sad feeling when someone passes away and a time of mourning is always at hand. Hopefully they will see a light and it not drag your country down to badly from this loss. I hope things still stay up top for your country in there time of need.

Condolence to the Aquino family and to all the Filipinos. Former President Aquino is well loved the Filipino nation. Although it was already expected that Mrs. Aquino will passed away, but people still feel the tragic. Philippines has lost its icon for democracy.

I heard the news first on the radios then i open my television to watch the live news. Indeed..it is true the former ex. president Corazon C. Aquino had recently passed. My sympathize and prayer to the soul of the ex. president Cory Aquino and her family Aquino. She is the bastion of peace advocating freedom without resorting to violence. The Philippines becomes famous after the 1986 Edsa revolution, and the what happen in Edsa revolution uniting the society to uproar in rising in out casting deposed President Ferdinand E. Marcos had been witnessed the world. It becomes an examples which many countries expressing dictatorship used in removing corrupt and dishonest government officials prove that the power of the people is stronger than the power of the government, coupled with prayers and peace freedom. The name Corazon C. Aquino will be honor starting today as the peacemaker and belong to the list of heroes responsible for advocating peace freedom over dictatorship!!
