As different kinds of people spoke in her necrological service, I see the many images of Cory Aquino. She was a nation's hero, an icon, an advocate, a client, a friend, a sister in law but most especially to her children, a mother. Yet her fine character of humility and love stood out in all the roles that she took.
My eyes got wet from time to time. Especially when one of the members of her security group who worked for her until her death spoke about his heart. Sharing how thoughtful the former president was to ordinary people like him, to always ask them, even until the time of her sickness, if the guards already had their meals.
God will always use people for the good until his death. I know that all the people have learned from her in different ways. For me, I was reminded of the value of each one's life. The importance of showing your love to someone as long as you are able to.
In loving memory of former President Corazon C. Aquino, I am encouraging the blogosphere to light a candle for her. Grab the image below, add your prayer for Mrs. Aquino and link up.
