We remember Tita Cory today as we commemorate her 8th death anniversary.
She is often referred to as the Mother of our Democracy, but to me, she was primarily a loving, thoughtful, humble and gracious aunt. She inspired a generation to continue the work of safeguarding our freedom and improving the lives of our countrymen.
She said, "I don't have any formula for ousting a dictator or building democracy. All I can suggest is to forget about yourself and just think of your people. It's always the people who make things happen."
She reminds us, to this day, that it is up to all of us, together, to move this country forward and create a better Philippines.
Salamat, Tita Cory!
