ninoy aquino day..

hero ninoyToday, 21 August 2009, one of the days where Filipino's remember one of our best man of all time .. Sen. Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino. He was a Philippine Senator, Governor of Tarlac and an opposition leader against President Ferdinand Marcos. He was assassinated at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Manila International Airport (Now Ninoy Aquino Int'l Airport-NAIA) upon returning home from exile in the United States.

     His death catapulted his widow, Corazon Aquino, to the limelight and subsequently to the presidency, replacing the 20-year Marcos regime. There a lot of things showing how Filipinos honoured him. He has a monument on different historical places and frequently visited areas. He's on a Five Hundred Philippine monetary (P500), he's on history books, t-shirts, and a lot other things, small or big, cheap to costly. There are streets and places named after him.

    Now a days, you can find very few Filipino who's like him; mostly love, dedicated and determined. We just hoped that his goals will continue to the young ones today.

and filipino's would still be proud to say "FILIPINO'S ARE WORTH DYING FOR"..
