And so, the inevitable has come to pass…
Despite everything, I am still grateful for the hope that she brought to the Philippines twenty-three years ago in 1986. Because it has already happened, I am certain that it will happen again in the future. And again and again. Way after all of us living have passed. Until hopefully, we Filipinos will finally learn the lessons being taught us.
Her passing, like her crusade from late 1983 to early 1986, has put us in the proper perspective as Filipinos and as the one Filipino nation.
Thank you, Cory.
Thank you, Ninoy.
For your admirable lives so generously given over to the greater good of the Filipino nation and consequently for the triumph of democracy all over the world. Indeed, altruism personified.
In profoundly grateful remembrance,
