That's the top 10 list of the Philippine National Heroes. Is Benigno Aquino really a National Hero? And some people are suggesting that his wife Corazon Aquino must also be proclaimed as a National Hero(Heroine). What do you think? As of now the Noynoy Aquino administration in my own point of view is also doing nothing like the past administrations for the Filipino citizens. Yes! we are walking in a straight way, but....... we are blind-folded, so it is still useless! "Andun na nga po tayo sa matuwid na daan pero, nakapiring naman po tayo, wala ding silbi."
