Ninoy Aquino Day

From Wikipedia:

On August 21, 1983, while on his way to Manila, Aquino was accompanied by several foreign journalists to ensure his safety or, at the very least, to record events for posterity in case rumors of a planned assassination proved to be true. Despite a convoy of security guards (all assigned to him by the Marcos government) and a contingent of 2,000 military and police personnel on the tarmac, Aquino was fatally shot in the head as he was escorted off the airplane.

  1. Miss Jazz,

    I’ve missed you! I wish we were going to brunch together. Labor Day, Noon, Uncommon Ground (Uncommon Huevos). You should meet me and Elizabeth there. I promise my stories of this weekend would have you on the edge of your seat.
