I cannot in all conscience remain silent while a ruthless dictator rules in my country which has become a garrison state. —Benigno “Ninoy” S. Aquino, Jr.
Ayon sa Asiaweek: “Of all the emotions that coursed through Filipinos in the days after that Aug. 21, 1983 assassination, perhaps the strongest was sadness.”
Sa paggunita natin sa kamatayan ni Ninoy, bayani at martir ng demokrasya, nawa’y maalaala rin natin ang kanyang pagtangging manahimik sa gitna ng unos at ligalig.
