Corazon "Cory" Aquino
Former Philippine President
January 25, 1933 - August 1, 2009

A mother, a wife, a leader, an icon... there are so many words to describe Mrs. Corazon "Cory" Aquino.

She was first known as the wife of the late Senator Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino, Jr... who's one of the greatest leaders in the fight for democracy in his time. His death united the whole Philippines to fight against the dictatorship of the Marcos(es)... which had resulted to the first Philippine Revolution (Edsa Revolution) on 1986 and appointed his wife, Cory, as the first Philippine Woman President.

March 24, 2008 when the Aquino family announced that Cory (75) had a colon cancer. And yesterday, August 1, 2009, she had reunited the whole nation again with her death. Her last battle had already ended peacefully.

God might have already taken her from us, but she will always remain alive in our hearts. She will always be the great "Cory Aquino" who led the restoration of democracy and freedom back to the Philippines.
