Madame Cory Aquino - Paalam!

January 25, 1933 – August 1, 2009

I'm saddened to learn today of the recent death of former President Cory Aquino. An Icon that pioneered People Power and the first Female President of the Philippines who has revolutionized the status and power of women all over the world. The President that gave a whole new meaning to the Yellow Ribbon! A plain housewife that rose to power and ruled not just the government but an entire country. It's not surprising that even President Obama himself was saddened by her death. Cory is a legend.

She will always be remembered. Her name will forever be etched in history books. Farewell Madame Cory! You're life has been and always will be an inspiration to all of us Filipinos! Mabuhay ka!
