Liham ni Ninoy kay Noynoy (Letters of Hero Ninoy to President Noynoy Aquino)

Good day friends, for the past days I was not able to blog. I think I was infected with a "yellow fever". But don't worry. It is not contagious. It is just a feeling of awe, joy and hope after witnessing the oath-taking of the 15th President of the Republic. As I'm searching the web, I encountered these exchanges between the father, then a prisoner, locked-up by a constitutional and authoritarian regime and a young boy who later, no one knows and nobody expected it, would become someday, the most powerful person in the Philippines.

See how valuable a 500-peso bill today. It is more than just a souvenir but a historical document itself!

Yeah, I was a bit emotional when I learned Ninoys letter to his only son President Noynoy. The late Ninoy Aquino was so patriotic until the end. That made me proud of myself being a Filipino. President Noynoy deserved everyone’s accolade. I salute him for being a good son. I thank him for offering his commitment to the Filipinos.

Oh, I see my blog in here, too. Thanks! It looks good in here. (lol)
