Farewell to a Great Leader

President Corazon C. Aquino
Jan. 25, 1933 - Aug. 01, 2009

A woman of great courage, a source of inspiration, an icon of democracy, a mother, a painter, Tita Cory, President Corazon Aquino, our beloved former President... Goodbye and thank you for all the great things you've done to each and every Filipino. She's no doubt a great leader who has sacrificed and given so much all for the love her country. Despite her greatness, she has remained simple, humble and served as a true and compassionate leader of our country. Even after her term of presidency ended, her dedication for pursuing democracy and good governance continued to reign and influenced a lot of people. It's no wonder that from the moment her battle against colon cancer has been known, the love and admiration of every Filipino here and all over the world have continuously been pouring in all united in praying for her recovery. But today at exactly 3:18 am, her time has finally been ended. I myself, had been hoping for a miracle but I think she's now in a better place. And although she's not with us anymore her memories will continue to live on.
