President Corazon C. Aquino


When the country seemed to tumble down because of dictatorship,
you were there to sacrifice your privacy and family,
and return the country back its freedom.


When all Filipinos seemed too angry to think clearly,

you were there to calm a ravaging nation, and lead the country into prayer.


When there seemed no hope in the administration's system,
you are there helping us to salvage a rotting system.


I salute you for being humble, simple and true to yourself.

And yet, a woman so just and giving, such a woman of substance.



Thank you, President Corazon C. Aquino.
