Remembering Ninoy Aquino

Though I’m not yet born that day when Ninoy died, I feel the his spirit today by the people who supports him. Because of him Philippine freedom was again claimed by its people from the Marcos’ leadership.

Who is Ninoy Aquino?

Benigno Servillano “Ninoy” Aquino, Jr. (November 27, 1932 – August 21, 1983) was a Philippine Senator, Governor of Tarlac, and an opposition leader against President Ferdinand Marcos. He was assassinated at the Manila International Airport (later renamed in his honor) upon returning home from exile in the United States. His death catapulted his widow, Corazon Aquino, to the limelight and subsequently to the presidency, replacing the 20-year Marcos regime.


I hope that Ninoy’s memory will still remain in our heart together his wife Corazon Aquino.

  1. Yes, you were really are too young then to really have found the truth. I don’t blame you because until now the Phil. media is so bias, it’s hard to find the truth. Try asking your parents if they know who was Commander Dante. They probably know.
    If you are aspiring to become a political scientist then you should dig deeper to find the truth. Don’t just get stuck-up with idealism as most Filipinos does. It is bad for you and your bayan. You wouldn’t want your bayan to become a Communist state, do you? Have you ever heard of the saying, “The only good Communist is a dead Communist”?
    What that means is, he is already dead so he is harmless as a Communist as long as you don’t tell that he is a Communist. Yes, Communism is the one that really killed him. The USA was fighting fiercely against Communism in Vietnam, and the Phil. government was fighting fiercely against Communism in our backyard. Whoever killed him should be the hero.
    I personally know somebody who attended Philippine College of Commerce, and was one of the many students who witnessed the introduction of Ninoy Aquino as the Commander Dante. That’s when Ninoy was heard talking Communist propaganda in Mt. Makiling.
    So, I hope this will clear up or heal you and most Filipinos unnecessary pains. Don’t dwells on pains, just open your mind. You did not lost anything.

  2. correction:

    My friend was one of the many students from the Philippine College of Commerce that were brought by the busload to Mt. Makiling to witness Ninoy Aquino as a NPA, introduced by Commander Dante.
