President Aquino leads commemoration of father Ninoy’s 31st death anniversary
 

President Benigno S. Aquino III led the commemoration of the 31st death anniversary of his father -- the late Senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, Jr. -- on Thursday.

The President, together with his sisters Ballsy, Pinky, Viel and Kris, attended a mass offered for the democracy icon at the Manila Memorial Park in Parañaque City. Other family members, close relatives and friends of the Aquinos were also at the cemetery to remember Ninoy.

Presidential Security Group chaplain Monsignor Daniel Tansip, who officiated the mass, emphasized the importance of commemorating Ninoy’s death, which served as a catalyst for change during the dictatorial regime of then President Ferdinand Marcos.

Tansip said Ninoy’s memories and good deeds remain not only in the hearts of his family but also in the hearts of the people.

“Sa pagnanais na isulong ang pagbabago tungo sa kabutihan ng ating bayan, ibinuwis ng inyong mahal na ama ang kanyang buhay, kaya naman siya ay nabibilang sa mga bayani at martir,” he said.

He said if Ninoy were alive today, he would be very proud of his son -– President Aquino -– for the reforms in government that the latter has instituted. (full story: 08.21.14)
