RIP Cory Aquino, 1933 – 2009

Ninoy said that the Filipino is worth dying for. But Cory lived. And thank God that she did.

As Howard Chua-Eoan writes in TIME,

Whenever the country appeared to be in a crisis, Cory Aquino rose above the bureaucratic procrastination that had always bogged it down, reminding her people that they once astonished the world with their bravery — and that they could do it again. But Filipinos must now take stock. Whom will they march with now that their saint has gone to meet her God?

Thank you for being the President you have been in our hour of need. Moreover, thank you for being the Filipino you have inspired us all to be. Because of you we shall never walk alone.

Watch Cory Aquino’s speech to the joint session of the US Congress:

Part 2 and 3.

The Washington Post also has a very comprehensive piece.
