Good Bye, Madam Aquino (An Applause To All Women)

If you are a Filipino, I am sure that you have heard about the passing away of our former president Madam Cory Aquino. She died of the cardiac arrest at the age of 76 years old, but had been diagnosed to have colon cancer two years ago. I was watching Kris Aquino’s (Madam Cory Aquino’s daughter) eulogy to her mom, and she had really touched everybody’s heart that listened to her message. It was really a “heart-pinching” moments knowing this family and the obstacles that they have been through.
Madam Corazon Aquino was the 11th president of the Philippines and was given the name “Mother of Democracy” for being the lead figure in the political opposition against the autocratic rule of President Ferdinand Marcos. She was a woman of strong personality and with strong principles, not only as a politician, but also as a mother to her seven children. She had dedicated her life making sure that we, the Filipinos, will not lose our democracy again. Whenever she sensed something that might possibly lead to compromising, she doesn’t hesitate to stand in between for the Filipinos.
All the Filipinos love Madam Corazon Aquino. If you are a Filipino, you will agree with me when I say that we have Filipinas (too many to mention) that have the same personality as I have mentioned above. These women deserve the same salutation we give to our heroes and former presidents. But I guess you agree with me that women who have children are worth praising. Being a mother is not an easy task.
Here is a gift idea on how to show appreciation to our women with children. Saving the cord blood and giving it to somebody very dear to you is one very special gift that could some day give back: a gift certificate for cord blood banking. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hold on to nature’s miracle: stem cells.

Many Indonesian people also know Cory Aquino. She is very popular here, as we also have Megawati Sukarnoputri.
