Ex-Philippines Leader Corazon Aquino Dies at 76

Ex-the 11st Philippine president Corazon Aquino (or her nick name famous is Cory) dies on Sunday, August 1, 1009, in Manila caused by advanced colon cancer that she long had been suffering. Philippine and world citizen feel sorrow after heard this news. Many feel like sad and happy mixed remembered what the late have done. Sad because Philippine democration icon with shinning inner beuaty to all over the world has passed away. Happy because Cory is one country moral icon who not tempted to misuded his power that she get from Ferdinand Marcos , the previous persident. “Mother died in peace on August 1, 2009 at 03.18 am,” says her son, Senator Benigno Aquino Jr, outside Makati Medical Center, Manila. Cory got medical treatment in this hospital for a few days before she dies. Yes, I also sad here Corazon Aquino died because she is one of my president idol. I remember when I in junior high school, oftened heard news from televison or radio and also read it in newaspaper about her life and leadership. She is get president when Indonesia president Soeharto has power. Both of them now is gone. Based information from World Health Organization (WHO) in the world, colon cancer is kill 655,000 person every year. So from this fact is not wrong if colon cancer placed the second position of the most killer cancer. Philippine president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo where at that time was visiting United States of America, directly declared ten days of national mourning. Arroyo called Corazon Aquino as national asset. Cory was house wife type who have not political ambition, to be president because by condition pr destiny. However, she morality, humble, low profile, kind, and personal greatness make her always remembering by Philippine and maybe the world citizen. Her prestiges was increased suddenly after her husband dead becuase shooted when he landed in Manila International Airport in 1986. Prediction of his died because president Marcos plan. But until now, there never know who really asasination of Benigno Aquino mastermind. Good bye, Cory.....I always remember you....
