It’s sad that my very first entry for this month, after a long while, would be about death. Death that may be correlated to the color yellow nowadays. Despite of the color’s brightness, I am pretty sure that yellow is now mourning but will later on be a symbol of life, peace, and happiness. It still is, I know. But I won’t discuss death and its dark or sometimes creepy side, rather I’ll try to focus more on celebrating the life of a great person(not in detail, of course). An iconic woman known to Philippine history as the Mother of Democracy. The late President Corazon Cojuangco Aquino.
I am not much of a politics person, but I am aware of her contributions to our sovereignty. I was around 4 or 5 years old at the time of People Power and I had vivid memories of how it was during those days. Yes I wasn’t mature enough or at all at that time, but I later realized how important her role became. Especially at this latter part of her political career where she asked GMA to step down. Ok, I’m actually running out of words to say here because I am already sleepy, so as much as I want to express more, this would probably sound like I am sugarcoating or patronizing or just merely joining the bandwagon. To say the least, I am really really proud that a Filipino like her still exist in this mundane world, and it’s a relief to know that as a fact. Sad in a way, too. Because we lost a great hero, and I just can’t help but sympathize with the family. Well now that she’s gone, I am sure that she’ll be forever in people’s heart and that her name will forever be greatly etched in our history.
Rest In Peace, Tita Cory.
