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.
