Message of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo on the Death of Former President Corazon C. Aquino
Washington D.C. USA
31 July 2009

Today, the Philippines lost a national treasure. Cory Aquino helped lead a revolution that restored democracy and the rule of law to our
nation at a time of great peril.

Our nation will mourn her passing.

History was thrust upon her when her noble husband was cut down in the prime of his life as he fought for democracy and the rule of
law. She picked up the standard from the fallen warrior, Ninoy, and helped lead our nation to a brighter day.

I am announcing today that we will officially observe a ten day period of national mourning.

Our hearts go out to the family in this hour of grief and sorrow. The nation prays for Cory and her family.


Statement of Ambassador Willy C. Gaa on the Death of Former President Corazon C. Aquino

Along with the Filipino American community all over the United States, we mourn the passing of a great and inspirational leader and
the pride of the Filipino people. While President Cory Aquino is no longer with us, her legacy and her memory will forever remain in the
hearts of the Filipino people.
