Hungry for Leaders Like Her

Posted in People by Sandwich on August 3, 2009

The Filipinos are hungry for a leader.  This was resonating in my mind as I headed my way back to my cubicle, with confetti in my hair and with my phone loaded with photos and videos.  I had witnessed Beloved President Corazon Aquino’s final march along Ayala Avenue.aquino_street_jan86_596725a

Cory had moved people’s hearts, with her subtle way of managing the country.  “Let my people go.”  In my understanding, that’s also let my people be.  She has made a difference.  I think it is proof enough, that thousands of people will line up and march through the streets, rich or poor, rain or shine.  People remembered what she had been and cheered her on after her passing away.  She was not perfect, but her mistakes were miniscule compared to her prayers, her words and her actions.  She had been a great leader.

It is my prayer that our country would be blessed with leaders like her.  Thank you, Cory, for being a good example.

“Ako’y nagpapasalamat sa Panginoong Diyos na ginawa niya akong isang Pilipino.” – Former President Corazon Aquino (1933-2009)
