Teddy Locsin Jr. took to Twitter to express his grief over the death of former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.
According to Locsin, Aquino was incorruptible, brave, and indifferent to power and its trappings when he was the President.
He said that Aquino was able to hide his feelings well when he was the President because he was taught well by his mother, the late former President Corazon Aquino.
Finally, Locsin sent his condolences to Aquino’s siblings and revealed that although Noynoy was not fond of him, he could not help but admire him.
“I’m out of Twitter from grief over the death of a sea-green incorruptible, brave under armed attack, wounded in crossfire, indifferent to power and its trappings, and ruled our country with a puzzling coldness but only because he hid his feelings so well it was thought he had none; it was the way he and his siblings were raised by a great woman—their mother and of our restored democracy (without her none in power yesterday and today would be).
“She created the democratic space that made it possible. She believed that one must never let oneself go no matter the occasion or provocation; showing feelings was vulgar which I too believe but am guilty of. It is a hard ethic. Blood always shows. I beg his sisters to allow me the honor to share their grief. He wasn’t fond of me but I could not bring myself not to admire him,” Locsin tweeted.
Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III was the 15th President of the Philippines. The late former President Corazon Aquino and the late senator Ninoy Aquino were his parents. Noynoy was admired by many people for being an incorrupt politician.
Former Pres. Benigno Aquino III was rushed to the hospital Thursday morning. The reason was not yet disclosed to the public. According to initial reports, the former president was brought to a hospital in Quezon City, particularly the Capitol Medical Center.
Hours later, it was confirmed by a family member of Aquino that he has passed away at the age of 61. Noynoy was undergoing dialysis months before his death. He also had a heart operation recently.
