It's been too long since I've posted a new blog entry. Been very busy for school works. There were a lot of happenings which I have missed, but I guess I really need to take a break off school and share my thoughts about what happened last August 1, 2009. It's the death of the Saint of People Power. Well, everybody knows her. She's not just Kris Aquino's mother, not just Ninoy Aquino's wife, but Cory Aquino, the one who was responsible for our country's democracy. I guess everybody should pay tribute for her. It was a real lost for our land. Everybody loves her. But I guess she died happily. She fulfilled her dreams and finished her task successfully. Here's what she thought about death. She made a prayer:
Almighty God, most merciful Father
You alone know the time
You alone know the hour
You alone know the moment
When I shall breathe my last.
So remind me each day,
most loving Father
To be the best that I can be.
To be humble, to be kind,
To be patient, to be true.
To embrace what is good,
To reject what is evil,
To adore only you.
When the final moment does come
Let not my loved ones grieve for long.
Let them comfort each other
And let them know
how much happiness
They brought into my life.
Let them pray for me,
As I will continue to pray for them,
Hoping that they will always pray,
for each other.
Let them know that they made possible
Whatever good I offered to our world.
And let them realize that our separation
Is just for a short while
As we prepare for our reunion in eternity.
Our Father in heaven,
You alone are my hope.
You alone are my salvation.
Thank you for your unconditional love, Amen.
