ABC wed R5 : the letter "C"

C is for

poster says "President Cory C. Aquino, thank you so much for our Democracy"

Maria Corazon "Cory" Sumulong Cojuangco Aquino
January 25, 1933 – August 1, 2009

11th President of the Philippines
February 25, 1986 – June 30, 1992

Corazon as i know it is the Spanish term for heart. For us Filipinos (people of the Philippines) Corazon is a commonly used name for a girl.

Corazon is also the name of a lady who stood against the stronghand, and she is Corazon "Cory" Aquino. She became the President of the Philippines from February 25, 1986 until June 30, 1992. She is considered the "mother of Philippine" democracy.

i admit, when i was a child, im not a fan of her, but now im a grow-up man, i just realized the turn of events that happened during her term as president, made me a new fan. some of this event (but not limited to) which i personally experience are: the rights of Women and Children; public order and safety; Democracy; Freedom of the Press and Mass Media; greater faith to God and country; integrity in public service; employees' benefits; public service.

on this day 05 August 2009, she will be laid to rest but her legacy to the Filipino people will continue.

Thank you madam Corazon, for giving us democracy, morality in service and meaning of being a Filipino. You are truly a Corazon, the heart of the Filipino and of our country.

Have a Great Wednesday to all of us :D

Hers was an amazing life, and someone that appeared to bring peaceful change, after her own personal tragedy, that changed her, and your country's path.
