This is how Kris Aquino remembers her dad Ninoy Aquino
Queen of all Media Kris Aquino commemorates the Ninoy Aquino Day with this message for her father.
August 21 is a special non-working holiday in the Philippines to remember the day when former Senator Ninoy Aquino was assassinated. For this year, Kris, the youngest among the Aquino siblings, shared this lengthy message as a show of appreciation for her father.
The actress-host shared a photo of her with her Ninoy and Cory Aquino. She shared that it was taken during their first winter in Boston. Kris said that it was the only time she really experienced that she has a father.
It is because her father was imprisoned when she was just 1 year and 7 months old. When they finally got the chance to be together, it only lasted for three years. “Maybe he had an inkling that we only had 3 years of borrowed time,” Kris said.
In that period of time, Ninoy worked hard to win his daugher’s love and just spend time with her as much as he can. “He went to all my school programs, went with my mom and charmed all the Sisters teaching in my school when it was time to get my report card, and we had monthly “just the 2 of us” book shopping and ice cream dates…” the actress-host said.
Kris also shared the story when she and her dad waited for four hours to watch the Return of the Jedi. She got interviewed and Ninoy went home just to ask his wife to record in case Kris will be featured.
Indeed, soundbite was aired and when they watched the tape, Kris Aquino said that she saw the look of pride in her father’s face. “From my parents i have learned that the strength and resiliency of our children, and their determination to work hard to fulfill their ambitions will come from the love & encouragement they saw in the eyes of their parents,” she said.
Kris also thanked her dad for making her feel that she would and she could attain her dreams. However, she said that she still has to fulfill one promise she said to her father.
