Farewell President Cory

Cory Aquino can be likened to a bright light who shone amidst the darkness. The goodness of her soul and purity of intention seeping through the pitch black darkness of tyranny and conceit. She was not the ideal picture of what a valiant hero might be, the life she lived before she was thrust to lead this country after it was left scathe by 20 long years of dictatorship, was all but simple and humble. It may not be to the imaginings of those who were powerful then, that this woman, mild in her words and compassionate in character, was to be the ultimate symbol of strength and courage.
