Former President Corazon Aquino is now at the hospital in pain due to cancer of colon. Even in her weakest state of health, she once again has come and united the Filipino people in praying and supporting her. I find that a wonderful trait of Mrs. Aquino, that she can still muster a great number of people behind her, whether in politics or otherwise.
Though her presidency was wrought in ineffective political and economic leadership, her strength really showed in terms of her spiritual leadership. Only time will tell if this spiritual leadership will wake up the Filipinos about themselves and what Filipinos want for their future.
She has passed away on August 1st, 2009.
