A Tribute to Tita Cory


Our beloved icon of Philippine democracy which has inspired other countries around the world in the 1980s said her last farewell. I never assumed that her passing would be a bit emotional for most of us who were born and seen her as our adoring mother of our nation after the disintegration of Marcos regime in February 1986 - EDSA People Power Revolution which was flocked by more than 2,000,000 Filipinos who were up against the dictator that tore down this country.

I was only a child then as I remembered flashing the Laban sign and wearing a yellow shirt with the Ninoy's face silkscreened on it. The martial law years was a very dark and terrible year under the Marcos' regime. If we rethink and study the past most of the known governments in Southeast Asia such as Indonesia during Suharto's regime, Myanmar and others have resorted to due to the rising communist threat of the Soviet bloc nations and China.

I feel very reluctant that we were given a strong leader such as her. I underestimated her strength as a woman wherein leading the country is one of the most stressful appointment or position.

Looking back in the past, United States and its allies have devised plans to halt and intervene the spread of communism by indirectly supporting mujaheedeen fighters in Afghanistan, sending combat troops in the fourteen year old Vietnam War which has spread to nearby countries such as Laos and Cambodia which were once part of the colonies of the old French Indochina after World War 2.

Thank you Tita Cory for the wonderful years of helping restore democracy to the Philippines again.
