Please allow me this short blog entry so I can pay my respects to the former Philippine president, Cory Aquino.

Corazon Aquino: Icon of Democracy

This is what I really see her as. She’s not just an old woman who wears yellow a lot. She was a symbol of peace, truth and hope. She was a beacon of faith. She was a mother to a nation. She is the face of the EDSA Revolution. She is a worldwide icon of democracy. And that’s why she has my undying respect.

R.I.P. Tita Cory
