Ninoy: The Filipino Is Worth Dying For

This exact date twenty-six years ago, I was still a one year old tot who played with sand on the beach. My family spent time together and celebrated my mother's birthday a day ahead. August 21, 1983 was a Sunday that's why we were at the beach with our relatives. That day became a memorable day in history, when we got home, the grown-ups found out about the assassination of Benigno Aquino Jr., better known as Ninoy Aquino to Filipinos.

Ninoy sacrificed a lot for the nation and with his death, many changes were brought to the Philippines. His spouse Corazon Aquino became a president of the country as she was supported by the people who helped her overthrow a dictatorship.

Ninoy did not die in vain and his spirit will keep on burning for the country. Such a remarkable man will never be forgotten ever.
