Ibinahagi ni Kris Aquino sa Instagram ang mga alaala niya sa kanyang namayapang amang si dating Senador Benigno 'Ninoy' Aquino Sr. Kahapon, November 27, sana ang ika-84 na kaarawan ni Ninoy.


Ipinagdiwang ng pamilya Aquino ang kaarawan ng namayapang senador na si Benigno ‘Ninoy’ Aquino Sr. kahapon, November 27.

Ito sana ang ika-84 na kaarawan ng itinuturing na bayani ng Pilipinas.

Bilang bunso ng pamilya Aquino, inalala ni Kris Aquino ang pinagsamahan nila ng ama noon sa Boston, Massachusetts, kung saan na-exile si Ninoy dahil sa paglaban nito sa diktaduryang rehimen ni dating Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos.

Ayon kay Kris, halos tatlong taon lang niya lubusang nakilala ang ama.

Inalala rin niya ang mga pangaral nito sa pagbabasa ng iba’t ibang uri ng babasahin para maging handa siyang humarap sa mundo.

Pinaslang si Ninoy sa tarmac ng dating Manila International Airport noong August 21, 1983, nang bumalik siya sa Pilipinas pagkatapos ng ilang taong naka-exile sa Amerika.

Dahil sa naturang insidente kaya pinalitan ang pangalan ng paliparan sa Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

Narito ang buong post ni Kris:

“I got to know my Dad as a FATHER from May 1980 to August 1983. When he was jailed during Martial Law I was only 1 year & 7 months old. Those Boston years w/ him were SPECIAL- my Dad was brilliant & had a photographic memory.

“Our bonding would be while watching the evening news, him quizzing me about what I read in Time & Newsweek, us watching 60 Minutes and CNN, and every month on a Friday we'd have a Dad & bunso date, we'd go to Barnes & Noble and I could buy all the books & magazines I wanted for as long as I finished reading them w/in that month & then we'd have ice cream...

“I read voraciously- but you can see I lean towards fiction featuring lawyers & detectives, my magazines are about business, entertainment, and fashion, while my newspapers & online reading are political.

“Sabi kasi ng Dad ko- in any work I'll enter being well read, well informed, and well prepared will help me get ahead of the pack.
