i’ve been told that my strength is inspiring. But the TRUTH is, what you see in me is a mere reflection of the selfless COURAGE my parents possessed. i know my Dad well enough that he will be smiling at this statement- some have mistakenly claimed to understand my psychological makeup because i mostly grew up without a father figure present in my life. Obviously hindi nila ama ang nag-iisang Ninoy Aquino because he was larger than life; in the 3 years and 3 months of being blessed to have a normal home life in the US, he gave me simple memories that i now know were EXTRAORDINARY because for me, his BUNSO, he did his best for us to get to know each other, to communicate openly, and he not only acknowledged but strengthened my confidence in my completeness as a person. There is no doubt my mom was wise enough to prepare me for life’s harsh realities, but my dad showed me that our hearts should DREAM because deep within our souls is the knowledge we wouldn’t have dared pursue something that God had not already predestined because in the end it will all be a matter of FATE & FAITH. Benigno S. Aquino Jr. NINOY AQUINO 27 November 1932-21 August 1983

“I’ve been told that my strength is inspiring. But the TRUTH is, what you see in me is a mere reflection of the selfless COURAGE my parents possessed,” she said in an Instagram post.

Aquino shared how some people claimed to understand her “psychological makeup” just because she mostly grew up “without a father figure.”

On her end, she said, “Obviously hindi nila ama ang nag-iisang Ninoy Aquino because he was larger than life.”

She recalled their three years and three months in the United States where they were blessed to have a normal home.

“He gave me simple memories that i now know were EXTRAORDINARY because for me, his BUNSO, he did his best for us to get to know each other, to communicate openly,” she said.

Aquino said her mother, late President Corazon Aquino “was wise enough to prepare me for life’s harsh realities.”

However, she said it was her father who “showed me that our hearts should DREAM.”

Aquino ended her message with: “because deep within our souls is the knowledge we wouldn’t have dared pursue something that God had not already predestined because in the end it will all be a matter of FATE & FAITH.” /cbb
