R.I.P. Ex-President Cory Aquino 1933-2009


I woke up with the news that our country's first female president Corazon Cojuangco Aquino already passed away early this morning at 3:18 AM. She was fighting colon cancer for about a year and she had in the hospital recently for a month. The cancer cells already spread into her other organs and earlier, she died of cardio respiratory arrest.

I am still at a loss for words regarding her passing away although every time I see her on the news, I always make a comment on how it will be any moment now that she will be gone because I remember my Dad's condition before. He was rushed to the hospital, diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, got discharged, went home almost as strong as ever and then after a few months his body quickly weakened and then he was gone. It was a little similar with Cory although as ironic, she and her family were still lucky that they were able to spend much longer time with each other after finding out about her illness.

This just goes to show that time flies and our life could end in just a blink of an eye and with just a snap of a finger. 

My condolences to the family and friends of the former president.
