Cory Aquino died at 76

As of this morning, it was confirmed that the former president Cory Aquino died exactly at 3:18 early this morning. The country was shocked about it and felt sorry for the family of Aquino. The death of the former was due to colon cancer which was already in stage 4. Although the cause of death was mainly from cardiorespiratory arrest.

Corazon "Cory" Aquino, January 25, 1933 to August 1, 2009, was the former president of the Philippines and a world-renowned advocate of democracy, peace, women's empowerment, and religious piety. Wife of the late senator Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino, who fought for democracy that was said to be the famous EDSA revolution.

Many people mourn for her death specially those whom she had helped in time of her career as a president. She was also coined as a peacemaker, for she was fighting for peace when EDSA revolution was ongoing.

The Filipino people couldn't resist this phenomenon that a great leader had died. Some put a yellow ribbon on their cars symbolizing their support for Cory.

In my state as a student, I am grateful that God gave our country a great leader to be proud of in the world. A leader who is not scared of fighting for peace and justice among others. A leader who stands out in everything.

Mabuhay ka Cory! Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!
