I may not have seen you at your rest but I have witnessed your children walked through the rain to pay their respect.

Yesterday, you just traveled the last street of your journey but one thing is for sure, your children, the Filipino people , will embrace the democracy and freedom you have fought for us , forever.

We could grieve for a wonderful woman like you who personified simplicity, purpose and patriotism. We could continue what your husband died for and what you had lived for; Faith in the Filipino people. Faith in our own integrity. Faith in our Lord.

Soon, the buzz of your death will wither. It’s inevitable. The media will start covering different stories and we’ll have other interesting topics to lurk on.

Now, the questions are:

‘Til when will be inspired to live a good life not only for ourselves but, more importantly, for our nation and those we hold dear? ‘Til when will we warmly embrace our being Filipino? Kikilos ba tayo o mag e-eemote na lang forever and ever?

I think, we all have to keep the fire of genuine faith burning.

But I will still thank God for making me a Filipino and I am very proud to be one. Farewell and Thank you, President Corazon Cojuangco Aquino.
