As all of our Pinoy providers well know, former President of the Philippines Corazon “Cory” Aquino passed away last weekend at the age of 76. Cory was the wife of Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, the opposition leader who was famously assassinated at the Manila airport in 1983, after which Cory, a self-proclaimed “plain housewife” with no previous political aspirations, was swept into power under the People Power Revolution.
I was lucky enough to meet Cory in 2006 at the Aquino Museum, and I thought I’d post this picture as my little tribute to Cory.
I’m the big guy on the left, my lovely wife Amanda is second from the right, and my father-in-law (born in Bicol) is on the right. And front and center, gracious and full of optimism, wearing her trademark yellow, is President Cory.
Just thought I’d share!
