Former President Corazon C. Aquino Dies, (January 25, 1933 – August 1, 2009)


She was the president of the Philippines from 1986 - 1992. The 11th president of the the country and asia's first female president. She was installed as the next leader by the peaceful 1986 "People Power Revolution".
She was held as "woman of the year" by the TIME magazine in 1987.
It was a Very sad news today in the philippines.
Cory Aquino Died at the age of 76 from a cardio respiratory arrest.
Found out the news through my dad who's almost always updated with the news in Philippines.
She is one of the biggest influence and had impacted not just the homeland but the World as well and shaped History during her time.
I don't remember much back then since I was little at the time she was a president and all the political activities that was going on in Philippines. I do remember my parents and relatives getting involved though. I remember seeing the picture where my sister was carrying me on her shoulders during the edsa revolution. I don't have the picture since it's in the Philippines. I was a year old and a couple months or something..(I was walking already..lol).
And as time pass by, I learned more about the history and its importance.

Prayers and many thanks to "CORY"
Salamat.
