Cory Aquino’s death: Nation lost ‘mother, guiding voice’

MANILA, Philippines – The nation should keep the memory of former President Corazon Aquino alive by standing for truth, freedom and justice, especially at this time when the Constitution is under threat, former president Joseph Estrada said in a statement issued by his spokesperson.

Estrada condoled with the Aquino, saying the nation lost a “mother” and a “guiding voice of the people.”

“Today our country has lost a mother. This is a sad day for the Filipino people. President Aquino has not only been an icon of democracy but has stood as the guiding voice of our people since Edsa 1,” said Margaux Salcedo.

“We wish she could have lived longer because we need her especially now that our Constitution is being threatened anew. Now we must honor her by practicing the principles embodied in our Constitution that she stood by — truth, justice, freedom, love — and by fighting for our democracy as she did,” Estrada added.
