VP Leni Robredo To Filipinos: ‘Draw Inspiration From Ninoy Aquino’s Story’
LENI ROBREDO – Vice President Leni Robredo urged Filipinos to “draw inspiration” from Benigno “Ninoy” Simeon Aquino Jr.’s story.
On Ninoy’s 37th death anniversary, his daughter Kris Aquino shared a lengthy message on her Instagram account as a show of appreciation for her late father. She also shared a photo of her with her mom and dad. She said it was taken during their first winter in Boston.
Vice President Leni Robredo on Friday urged Pinoys to “draw inspiration” from the late politician’s story amid the challenges that the country faces today. She encouraged the public not to forget his death and “what it meant.”
“Today, as we endure yet another dark night, we draw inspiration from Ninoy’s story: from his courage, from his steadfast faith in our people, from his heroism,” she said.
Robredo reminded how the late Senator “was murdered before he even set foot on the tarmac, coming home from exile to continue the struggle for our freedoms and dignities.”
VP Robredo reminded the public not to lose home amid these challenging times. She also underscored the importance of sharing opinions and beliefs.
“Our strength as a nation emanates from our collective resolve to do what we can to move towards this better horizon,” she ended.
