Former Pres. Corazon Aquino Dies at 76

I opened my TV this morning at 7 am and the news about former Pres. Corazon Aquino Dies at 76 was on the headline. I was glued to the boobtube after that waiting for updates. Cory Aquino or Tita Cory as what most of the Filipinos call her succumb to cardio respiratory failure at about 3:18 am this morning. She's been battling stage 4 colon cancer for a year now. Her children and relatives where beside her when she passed away.

Her body is now lying at the chapel in La Salle, Greenhills and public viewing is ongoing now. Our country is mourning right now and Pres. Gloria Arroyo already announced a 10 day mourning all over the Phils. Cory is instrumental in the restoration of democracy in our country during the 1986 EDSA revolution.

Rest in peace Tita Cory. Condolences to the Aquino family.
