Philippines: Corazon Aquino Dead at 76 (Bienvenido Macario, Philippines/US) (John Eipper, USA, 08/01/09 7:42 pm)

Bienvenido Macario writes: I wish to convey my condolences to the children, family and supporters of former Pres. Corazon Aquino. She served her fixed term of six years and had no trouble stepping down handing the reins of government to the next president Fidel V. Ramos. Excerpt from the news: Deposed President Joseph Estrada, who was toppled in the country's second "people power" revolt--backed by Aquino--in 2001, said the Philippines had "lost the true mother of democracy." Aquino's successor, Fidel Ramos, who was the military's vice chief of staff when he broke with Marcos and embraced Aquino, said the former leader "represented the best of the Filipino of the past and the future." President Barack Obama was deeply saddened by Aquino's death, said White House press secretary Robert Gibbs. "Ms. Aquino played a crucial role in Philippines history, moving the country to democratic rule through her nonviolent 'people power' movement over 20 years ago," Gibbs said. "Her courage, determination, and moral leadership are an inspiration to us all and exemplify the best in the Filipino nation." JE comments: On behalf of all WAISdom, my condolences to the Aquino family and the people of the Philippines. -- For information about the World Association of International Studies (WAIS), and its online publication, the World Affairs Report, read its homepage by simply double-clicking on: http://wais.stanford.edu/ John Eipper, Editor-in-Chief, Adrian College, MI 49221 USA
