“How shall freedom be defended? By arms when it is attacked by arms, by truth when it is attacked by lies, by faith when it is attacked by authoritarian dogma. Always, in the final act, by determination and faith.” ― Archibald MacLeish

August 21,1983: What every Pinoy should remember about the Ninoy assassination!

August 21, 1983, Manila International Airport
Benigno Aquino, Jr., Assassinated
The brutal event left a lasting impression on many Pinoys. 

"Where were you when you heard about Ninoy's assassination?" would become a common topic of discussion.

Who ORDERED the brutal killing of Ninoy?
The Dictator, Imeldific or the Loyal General?
 Here Lies Love
“You know,” Imelda said about the man for whose violent death she might have been partly responsible, “he was all sauce and no substance.” 

Marcos: “But honey, that is the essence of Filipino politics!”

Everybody but the docile press knew who was the mastermind.
Ninoy became everybody's hero and the "Anti-hero"occupant in Malacanang became everybody's "contrabida".
Bizarro world of the conjugal dictatorship
In the Bizarro world of the Marcos conjugal dictatorship, the New Society was ruled by the Bizarro Code which states "Us do opposite of all Earthly things! Us hate beauty! Us love ugliness! It is big crime to oppose the conjugal dictatorship in the Bizarro World!"

“Remember that all through history, there have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they seem invincible. But in the end, they always fall. Always.”― Mahatma Gandhi
