PRES. CORAZON AQUINO: Philippines' mother of democracy....
August 5, 2009 3:16am CST
I never know all of her good efforts for the sake of our country not until her death based on the testimony of some of her close friends, relatives and love ones. We owed our democracy from the tyranny of the dictator who once governed our country for a very long period of time... Did you think of that? Did you make your own little way of paying a tribute to her? Yes I did..this maybe an easy and little one but I heartily and sincerely did it for our mother democracy, the late President Corazon "Cory" Aquino... this is the link... http://www.freewebs.com/mobhomeir/apps/blog/

Very nice blog I would say. I was in my teens when this things happened. During the snap elections I was still unable to vote back then but I was very much well aware of what was happening. I have seen during the presidential campaign and the election itself. I also witness the People Power though I wasn't able to attend because we were in the province back then. So we all depended on hearing the news on Radio back then as our TV is not live back then. All were broadcast on delayed telecast so news is much faster on Radios back then. At first I would say I was confused back then. Fear that the change of administration would trigger more trouble but it did not happen. I guess the fear that the government would collapse if the Marcoses were not in power was just false rumors. But still despite that I still hear many stories from testimonies from his people that I still do not know and I am glad to hear those stories right now. It gave me the opportunity to know her more even though she has passed away already.

Yes that's right my friend...she deserved to be called the Mother of our Democracy. I remember also his late husband Ninoy, he was also fighting with the same fate with his late wife, former and late President Cory. If not with them we could not achieve our Freedom from the hand of tyrant dictator...thanks for responding..

I am not a fan of her before but I do appreciate her simplicity, great faith and her love and concern for the filipino people. The more admiration I felt seeing the filipino people paying their last respect, showing their love and gratitude for her greatness.

Yes, I also made a small tribute and salute to her greatness as a leader and as an icon of democracy. I made the post the day she passed away, and the title is Cory Aquino: Thank you and Farewell Madam President and here is the link - http://fatherblogger.com/2009/08/01/cory-aquino-thank-you-and-farewell-madam-president/ Now, she made us proud again to be a Filipino.

I wasn't born when she elected as our president but through my parents i found out all the sacrifices she did in our country. As a filipino and a woman who owed our democracy to our beloved president i did some tribute to her by posting something about her and her accomplishment in our country on my blog.

Yes you're right my cute friend. It was because of Ninoy, her late husband, that we were awaken from long asleep under one tyrant dictator. If not of Cory we were not free from bondage from this dictator. She (Cory) deserved to be called the Mother of Our Democracy..thanks for responding...
