The death of Ms. Cory Aquino yesterday was disheartening. It is the same feeling I have experience when Raul Roco died in 2005.

Doy Laurel campaigning in Naga City.
I was 10 years old when 1986 election happened and Cory Aquino was installed as President. Yellow colors became a fad, and Ms. Cory stole the hearts of the Filipinos, the Bicolano people is one. I could not imagine a life where freedom endures. I could not imagine a life here if Marcos remained in control of our country, too. To me, that is something I and the Filipino will forever indebted to Ms. Cory Aquino.
Goodbye po, asin Dios na po an bahala magbalos saimo sa gabos na karahayan na itinao mo samuya!
