I remember her when I was a junior high school back home in Nueva Ecija during her campaign sortie in her bid for presidency. She was very unassuming but she was an embodiment of national strength and hope and sincerity, which, I think, were the reasons that catapulted her to power. I regret that I had no time to meet her personally when I worked for her successor, President Fidel V. Ramos, for she chose to be a private citizen after her term.
There would be no enough words to pay tribute to the great president. But this is my pitch--she made Presidency a symbol of trust, confidence and decency, that no other successor has ever done.
In this light, I just want to share two videos that will remind us of her presidency.
Cory Aquino sworn into office as the 11th president of the Republic of the Philippines. (The video, unfortunately, cannot be embedded, thus the link).
And the EDSA People Power theme song that reverberated in the airwaves back in 1986.
May President Cory rest in eternal peace.
