A fighter woman

Former President Corazon Aquino was a woman of faith, a fighter a source of hope and inspiration not only to her family but to entire nation as well. March 24, 2008, Aquino's family disclosed that she has colon cancer. The entire nation feel sad for her condition and I admit that I was one of them. She was the 11th and the first female President of the Philippines. How can we forget the 1986 election where both Aquino and her opponent, the incumbent and Ferdinand Marcos declared victory. The Filipino rose in protest and Marcos was forced to flee the country. She wave a pro-democracy movements around the world by leading a 1986 "people power" revolt. She's truly an icon of democracy. She's a great woman, and an inspiration to all Filipinos, God bless her!
