CORY, Hindi Ka Nag-iisa!

The Black and White Movement joins the whole nation and the rest of the world in paying tribute to President Cory Aquino. Our hearts are broken, but the fervor she lit in our hearts will burn forever.

In life, she inspired us to rise above our despair and to regain our dignity as a people. She modeled a life of selfless giving – fighting alongside those who had less, and taking the cudgels for those who are helpless in seeking justice.

In death, she awakens us from our stupor of apathy, reminding us to be steadfast in fighting for what is right and just. And, even if only for a short moment, she unites our people towards the common aspiration for a just and prosperous motherland.

We grieve for her family, and we thank them for allowing us to love their mother, their patience as they shared her with us.

As President Cory meets her Creator, we can almost hear the good Lord declaring, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” The Filipino people and citizens of the world can only say, “Amen!”

Buong bayan. Buong mundo. Nagpapapugay sa isang tunay na bayani!

Cory, Hindi ka nag-iisa.

Dear Noynoy,

We would like to share our deepest condolences to you and your family for the loss of your mom.

We Filipinos felt the great loss as well. It is as if part of us died with her but that would not prevent us in pursuing the legacy she left us - undying and unwavering love for our country and our God.

We would also like to express our support to your advocacy and even your candidacy not only as our senator but even as our president in 2010.

Now that we have witnessed again the love of Filipinos to both your dad and mom, we believe that only somebody from your family can bring back the spirit of unity and righteousness in governing our country.

Let not this spirit die down among us Filipinos as we laid to rest our beloved president, but let it bring forth a new spirit among Filipinos to be one in her advocacy for our country.

Ituloy natin ang laban ni Ninoy at Cory...nawa'y pangunahan mo kami sa adhikaing ito..

We will continue to pray that our Lord Almighty will continue to give you wisdom and strength to face the enormous challenges in leading our country for His glory.

Sincerely,

Sandra Sreapio
