A tribute for her

As i wake up this morning, When i opened the Television, i heard the news that our former president Corazon C. Aquino have passed away. For us youth, maybe, we do not know her essence & importance in our history.

I've seen a lot of documentaries & stories in the television & in our subject before, the Philippine History about EDSA revolution 1 and her family's involvement in our democracy. Her husband, Ninoy Aquino sacrificed his own life for us filipinos to win back the democracy we were hunger for. Being a wife of a Ninoy Aquino, i think it's hard to continue her husband's fight, but still, she continued to fight for our freedom & democracy!. We must say that Cory C. Aquino is the mother of our democracy because of the courage she have shown in Martial Law way back in 1986.

I believe that youth must know & learn that courageness, faithfulness & being God fearing is our key to get what we want, just like the mother of democracy have shown.

In times of suffering in her cancer, still, she showed that she's strong & God fearing after all her trials. Also, she united the filipinos once more by prayers for her healing.

She offered her life for us before. & now, it's our time to give her our tribute, for her trip to our Almighty's hands. Even though we are sad, atleast now, she's with her husband & the painfullnes are all gone. She also made a prayer, let us all read it:

Prayer for a Happy Death
by Corazon C. Aquino

Almighty God, most merciful Father
You alone know the time
You alone know the hour
You alone know the moment
When I shall breathe my last.

So, remind me each day,
most loving Father
To be the best that I can be.
To be humble, to be kind,
To be patient, to be true.
To embrace what is good,
To reject what is evil,
To adore only You.

When the final moment does come
Let not my loved ones grieve for long.
Let them comfort each other
And let them know
how much happiness
They brought into my life.
Let them pray for me,
As I will continue to pray for them,
Hoping that they will always pray
for each other.

Let them know that they made possible
Whatever good I offered to our world.
And let them realize that our separation
Is just for a short while
As we prepare for our reunion in eternity.

Our Father in heaven,
You alone are my hope.
You alone are my salvation.
Thank you for your unconditional love, Amen.

There's also one sentence that she said in one of her interviews that i can't forget, she said" Nagpapasalamat ako sa Panginoon dahil ginawa niya akong Filipino at masaya ako na maging kagaya ninyo". This means that Filipinos must not be ashame of being Filipino. instead we must be thankful, proud & improve our culture & country for the next generations.

Your memories, Mrs. Corazon C. Aquino will remain in our hearts & mind. And i promise that the next generations will still know your words, advocasies & your contribution in our history, not for me, but for the Filipinos & for our Country, the Philippines.

Before i finish this post, i want to share this historical video that really touched my heart, & made me realized that our generation is so lucky & blessed that we have our freedom today because of her & Ninoy Aquino.

* Please watch the video, not for the sake of this post but as a symbol of knowing the mother of democracy & our tribute for her. Let's also continue our prayers for her soul's journey.
