In the last several days, the media has constantly harped on the notion that the death of former Pres. Corazon “Cory” Aquino is something that unified the country.
Wrote the Philippine Daily Inquirer in its editorial on August 2:
Unity is a rare thing in our country; we have it now; and adding to the feelings of grief is the wistful realization that it took the passing of Cory to reunite a divided nation.
If there is one lesson we can learn from Cory Aquino, it is that this country needs to be united once more.
