To the Filipinos, tomorrow is the commemoration of Ninoy Aquino's death who was acclaimed as a hero here in the Philippines. I was still young during that time and had no idea about what really happened. What I knew was that Ninoy was an opposition to the Marcos government, a father to Kris Aquino and the husband of Cory Aquino. Did you believe Ninoy when he said, "The Filipinos are Worth Dying For?" What was he trying to fight for before?

Well, that's your opinion, I respect. If you really don't care about your country, then why are you still here? You can live somewhere else and change your nationality. I'd rather stay, no matter how many stupid people are in this country, but they are just a few, I guess. Still, majority of the Filipino people aren't stupid.
