I was so busy in past few days and I have not managed to write my articles.

The president of the Philippines has offered monument for the late former president Cory Aquino. This is to be always remembered that there was once an ordinary mother and housewife who stood to fight the Marcos regime.

For the benefits of those who do not know the history I would like to briefly share it here. Corazon "Cory" Aquino was the wife of the late great opposition leader Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino, Jr. (was a senator then) during the time of Marcos and his cronies in Malacanang Palace ( Malacanang, an official residence of the Philippine President). During Marcos time the country was under martial law and Marcos was known as dictator. He was in office for long period of time--December 30, 1965 – February 25, 1986.

When the time "Ninoy" had been assassinated on August 21, 1983 the Filipinos gave sympathy and support to his wife Cory Aquino. On February 25, 1986 although Marcos claimed that he won the election against Cory, the masses supported Cory and had a historic EDSA Revolution. For those who do not know, EDSA stands for Epifanio delos Santos Avenue, the main road that connects almost all cities in Metro Manila.Marcos had been forcedly taken out from office.

Since Cory now is considered mother of the Republic aside from being the first female president, Arroyo (the present president) wants to honor her by putting up a monument for her. On behalf of the family of Aquino, Noynoy (the only son of Cory and Ninoy)had made his statement saying that it would be best if the present president will just do good for the country. They just (family) wanted to keep low profile.

There are some rumors that they would like to make the Cory's birthday to become official holiday as well.
