Two years ago I wrote my thoughts on the late Ninoy Aquino’s memorable speech in Los Angeles in 1981, two years before he was assassinated at the then Manila International Airport, because if his threatening presence to the dictatorial Marcos regime of that period.
Today in the Philippines marks the 28th death anniversary of the country’s most charismatic politician, and one that was considered the greatest president that the Philippines never had. In remembrance, I am reposting the memorable speech from Youtube, and adding a complete transcript of what he said, courtesy of Real Encounters.
Watch the video, hear his voice, and read his words. Aquino is one of those rare people, the likes of which we might never see again in our lifetime….
