On this day, August 21, is Ninoy Aquino Day.
The incident that happened on 21 August 1983 kindled the fire for democracy that led to the People Power Revolution in 1986.
“We should not depend on one man; we should depend on all of us. All of us are expandable in the cause for freedom and therefore I say stand up now and be a leader, and when all of us are leaders, we will expedite the cause of freedom.”
– Benigno Aquino, Jr.
