I woke up to a sad day. One of the greatest statesmen this country ever had the fortune to have, Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago has passed on today September 29, 2016. She was 71 years old. A life very well lived, she has accomplished so much for herself and for the Filipino people.
My earliest memory of her was when she run for president back in 1992. I remember my mother voted for her, when i tell her now she has forgotten that she has. But i remember that she did. I wanted to vote for her, except I was only 10 or 11 years old then.
Through the years i have always believed in her faith in the Filipino people. Her convictions and high morals has always been her guiding compass into steering this impoverished, sick Nation from the hands that truly holds us captive, corruption.
