GINUNITA ni Kris Aquino ang death anniversary ng kanyang ama at dating senador na si Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino nitong August 21 sa pamamagitan ng pag-post sa Instagram na kumikilala sa pagiging mabuting ama nito na suportado ang mga pangarap ng kanyang anak.
Kasama nito ang picture ni Ninoy hawak ang baby pa noong si Kris.
Ayon sa IG post ni Kris, “My dad was killed when he was only 50 years old… my mom saw my 1st commercial, 1st tv show, and the 1st movie- all those ‘FIRSTS’ that the man carrying me here ALWAYS said would one day happen.
“Ang mom pagsasabihan pa sya, ‘dad, don’t get her hopes up.’ But HE would whisper to me ‘beautiful, you’ll be on tv and starring in movies, and signing autographs…’ Sharing this because if you’re a parent, or planning at some point to be one, PLEASE encourage the dreams of your children and equip them with the discipline and skills to SHINE in what they love doing… siguro po kaya hindi ako sumusuko sa LABAN ng buhay kasi number 1 lesson ng dad: kung choice mo ang public life, whether in politics or entertainment, bawal ang pikon. 2nd rule: life should be lived guided by the principle of addition and never subtraction… dad, i am infinitely proud that i’m yours and mom’s, BABY.”
Sa isa pang IG post ni Kris, binigyang-pugay niya hindi lang ang kanyang yumaong ama kundi maging ang pumanaw na rin niyang ina na si dating Pangulong Corazon “Cory” Aquino. Ipinost niya ang larawan na kasama niya sina Ninoy at Cory pati ang kanyang Ate Ballsy.
Sabi ni Kris sa kanyang IG post, “Taken a couple of months before our father was assassinated… bakit ate & me lang? because at that time, camera shy talaga si pinky, noy, and viel… in loving remembrance of the 1st man who gave me the courage & the wings to BELIEVE in my dreams, together with all my love for the woman who instilled in me, the backbone to make sure my childhood wishes became REALITY.
“Dad knew how to make people feel special & important. Mom knew how to make us feel protected & encouraged us to be the best versions of ourselves… God blessed me way more than i deserved with the parents who gave me life, and the sons na ngayon naman, ako na ang nagpapalaki…
Benigno “Ninoy” S. Aquino Jr.
27 November 1932-21 August 1983″
