Remembering Ninoy this August 21
Wednesday, August 20, 2014
As August 21 draws near once again, and as we commemorate the 31st death anniversary of Ninoy Aquino, I cannot help but reflect on his life and how he impacted my own family.
Ninoy was always the “wunderkind” politician whose quick wit, rapid-fire delivery, and charismatic personality had many convinced that he would one day be president of the Philippines. But it was also these traits that earned him the notice, and the ire, of Marcos.
