Happy Birthday Tita Cory!

Today is former President Corazon Aquino's 80th Birthday. Though we all know she's dead, we celebrate her birthday anyways.

Corazon C. Aquino was born in Paniqui, Tarlac. She was the 11th President of the Philippines and the first woman to hold the office. She came into power after the bloodless EDSA revolution of 1986, which restored democracy in the country. As Commander-in-Chief, she defended this democracy, withstanding several coup attempts through her term, which lasted from February 25, 1986 to June 30, 1992.
