The first video post of Kris Aquino more than a month after the burial of her brother, former President Benigno Simeon “Noynoy” C. Aquino III, has gone viral.
The video post, which contained the background music “Hindi Ka Nag-iisa” by Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez, with the eulogy of Ballsy Aquino serving as a narration of events, was uploaded by Kris on early morning of the 12th death anniversarsary of former President Cory Aquino.
In the first part of the video, the body of the slain former Senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, Jr., the father of President Noynoy, can be seen lying on the airport tarmac.
It then briefly shows the funeral cortege of the late senator, the People Power revolution, the assumption of Cory Aquino as President of the Philippines, and finally, PNoy’s own ascension to the presidency.
“Mom i am sure won’t mind that we are posting this at 2 AM (the hour she died), on the day of her 12th death anniversary, because on August 2, it will be the 40th day since Noy’s death,” Kris said on the video’s comment box.
Kris also explained why she did not appear in any interviews or appeared on camera to speak on behalf of her family.
“Maraming nilalaman ang puso ko na gusto kong ibahagi sa inyong lahat… Sure ako marami ang nagtatataka bakit wala kayong nakitang post, napanuod na interview, o nakitang moment na ako ang nagsalita on behalf of our family. But, now is still not the right time for me… Naghihintay pa ko ng “go signal” from him- i know my brother will find a way to let “bunso” know when it’s time for all of you to hear the story from me of our journey- simply because all of you are a very special part of our journey, one i believe is a continuing one,” explained Kris in her post.
She then expressed her gratitude to everyone for making her and her three other sisters feel they are not alone in their grief.
“Sa inyo pong lahat, maraming salamat dahil pinaramdam nyo sa aming apat, kay Ate, Pinky, Viel, at sa ‘kin na hindi kami nag-iisa sa aming paniniwala that we were truly blessed to have Noy as our brother- na habang buhay naming IPAGMAMALAKI, PASASALAMATAN, HAHANAP HANAPIN, at MAMAHALIN,” Kris said.
The popular actress and TV host then said that while they still the pain, they are consoled in the thought that they are blessed to be a part of Noynoy’s and their parents’ lives.
“Though still so painful, we know how blessed we were to have been born as the children of Ninoy and Cory, and the sisters of Noynoy Aquino,” Kris ends.
