… these are just some of the titles you would get when you search for Corazon Aquino in the web… but to us Filipinos who are not politically inclined, those who just observe in the sideline, she’s Tita Cory to us, so simple, composed and collected, a prayerful person, a source of pride and inspiration, and a lot more… the person who brought us Filipinos to unite beyond what we can dream or hoped for… it is my prayer that the spirit of unity that she gave to us in Edsa Revolution (the bloodless revolution) in 1986 would forever live and be alive in the hearts of the Filipinos. Thank You Tita Cory …

Hi Leah, aside from Mother Teresa Tita Cory is one strong woman. All through the years she endured everything but she stand in her ground. She could manipulate people do soemthing about what realy happened and who really did killed her husband when she became a president but she choose not to.
That is why I was sad too knowing of her passing away though part of me is expecting it because of the kind of illness she got. Will continue of her repose soul May she rest in peace.
