Cory Aquino Dead - August 1, 2009

The former president died this morning at 3:18 am.

While it is no secret that I do not like Kris, I have a lot of respect for Cory. She was the president when came into consciousness, she was the first president that I knew.

Though I have no special fondness of her, I am kind of sad seeing a country weeping but also I am a little happy she is gone. She lived a full life, she saw her grand kids, she served a nation and she continued serving that nation after she was president. It was not fitting to prolong her agony battling cancer. She did not need to suffer anymore. She is now getting her well deserved rest.

She will finally be joining her husband. Many thanks to the former president for her legacy, and Godspeed.
