Noynoy Aquino died a sick and broken man

In the end, this is what it came down to. Power and money are useless when your health is at stake. What counts is how you lived your life on this earth; how sincere were you in uplifting the lives of those who had less and how you wanted to do right to those who had been wronged.

One does not gamble with people’s lives and not have the courage to face the families who lost their loved ones because of the decision you made. There was Yolanda, Mamasapano, the Zamboanga siege and Lahad Datu. There was the victims of violent crime because of shabu. There was the commuters who suffered daily because Sumitomo was arbitrarily replaced as the maintenance service provider of MRT-3. There was political vendetta against GMA, Corona, Erap, Enrile, Revilla and Binay. There was the skewed foreign policy which favored the interests of the few and not the greater interest of the Filipino people.

No matter what his allies and supporters say now, the Noynoy Aquino administration was not Camelot. This is not speaking ill of the dead. It is about speaking out the truth.
