the ultimate sacrifice

“It is not the setting aside of August 21 to commemorate the day of Ninoy’s assassination every year that makes him a hero…it is rather the sum of his selfless deeds that makes him so and gives meaning to August 21 as a celebratory occasion for the people to remind ourselves of the meaning of his life and especially of his epic death.”
