The late Mrs. Corazon Aquino was the first lady president of the Philippines. Honestly, she is one of the presidents i knew who was not a traditional politician. During younger years, people called a traditional politician "trapo". She had not had any interest of acquiring power for purposes on enriching herself with vast material wealth. The other one that i am referring to was the late Pres. Magsaysay. [ though he is way way beyond my time, my parents used to tell me how Magsaysay was during his presidential seat]. Being already a teen ager during Edsa 1, Mrs. Aquino, for me is more than the title of being the first lady president of the Philippines. She is the housewife who stood against a dictator in order to restore to the filipino people the democracy that we had been yearning for during that time.
Mrs. Corazon Aquino will be on her final resting place in Aug 5, beside her husband Benigno Aquino at the Manila Memorial Park. August 5 had been declared holiday by Malacanang as a commemoration to the late former president.
Mrs. Corazon Aquino is one of those figures that one would remember not just because she is another leader..she is more than that. She was a leader who showed her people what the word noble really means.
