Goodbye and thank you, former president Corazon "Cory" Cojuangco Aquino


A lady of great devotion to the Blessed Mother and loyal leader to the Filipino people. She is a prominent icon of democracy. In my opinion, her death is symbolic because she died on the first Saturday of this month (first saturdays are days dedicated to the Virgin Mary). Also, she died while the family is praying the fifth sorrowful mystery (The Crucifixion) according to Boy Abunda. May her devotion to the Mother of God inspire us to become pious like her.
