Paalam at Salamat, Tita Cory!

“We join a grateful nation in expressing our own grief over the sad demise of cancer warrior Tita Cory. We honor the radiant mother of democracy for her contributions to restoring our cherished freedoms and for helping create a national consciousness that treasures these freedoms. Above all, we thank her for the 1987 Constitution that attaches great importance to citizenship and the responsibility of the state to guarantee full respect of human rights, including the right of every Filipino to a healthy and safe environment.

Maraming salamat po at mapayapang paglalakbay.”
