Since last week her supporters had been giving their unwavering support by conducting prayers and healing masses.As of this moment, Filipinos around the world are fully giving our condolences to the Aquino family.
Our Ex-president Cory Aquino had done a very remarkable act in the country by saving us from Ferdinand Marcos' regime. His husband Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino had fought for his countrymen in restoring the lost freedom. He was assassinated when he got back in the Philippines and her wife continued the legacy. The Aquino's had a good life in the United States at the time when our countrymen were in total chaos.However, their father had decided to be back to his native land and to help his fellow Filipinos.Yellow symbolizes their family.It's also associated with EDSA Revolution that marked the end of Marcos' reign in the Philippines. This coming August 21 we will be celebrating Ninoy's Day. We owe our freedom to these people and so they deserved recognition. RIP Cory Aquino............
