Remembering AUGUST 21

AUGUST 21 is a date that every FILIPINOS would definitely remember as the day Senator Benigno Servillano "Ninoy" Aquino, Jr. was assasinated at the MANILA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (MIA) back in AUGUST 21, 1983. The said AIRPORT is now known as the NINOY AQUINO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (NAIA) in honor to him. AUGUST 21, 2009 marks the 26th DEATH ANNIVERSARY of this great FILIPINO that will never be forgotten on PHILIPPINE HISTORY because of his contributions. His death gave birth to an uprising that would restore DEMOCRACY here in the PHILIPPINES back in 1986 when her wife the LATE CORAZON COJUANGCO-AQUINO became the PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES. YUP!! That was the HISTORICAL EDSA PEOPLE POWER REVOLUTION of 1986. A LEGACY that would be pass on to generations. According to NINOY "THE FILIPINO IS WORTH DYING FOR". NINOY AQUINO (November 27, 1932 – August 21, 1983).

AUGUST 21 is also a date every PINOY MUSIC ENTHUSIASTS will remember as the day Teodoro de Villa Diaz who is more popularly known as Teddy Diaz was stabbed to death on AUGUST 21, 1988 in front of his girlfriend's house in Quezon City by two bystanders allegedly under the influence of drugs and alcohol. The son of Legendary PINOY ACTOR Vic Diaz, PINOY ROCKERS, WAVERS, PUNKS will definitely remember TEDDY's contributions in the PHILIPPINE MUSIC INDUSTRY as the FOUNDING LEAD GUITARIST of PINOY LEGENDARY BAND "THE DAWN". Unfortunately, he died at the peak of THE DAWN's career and popularity. AUGUST 21, 2009 marks the 21st DEATH ANNIVERSARY of this great musician who according to his close friends have a true PASSION FOR MUSIC. As Yours Truly, Dr. Stirring Rhod would sing "Singing out my ENVELOPED I-DIAZ"!! TEDDY DIAZ (April 1, 1963 - August 21, 1988).

Well, we're just remembering the 80s and of course remembering NINOY and TEDDY for this blogpost. THANKS to NINOY and TEDDY for their own contributions for the FILIPINOS to cherished.

Just remembering

Thank you for posting, isang maagang pagpapaalala sa nalalapit na event ng Aug. 21, ang kamatayan ni Ninoy na nagbigay siklab sa damdamin ng bawa't Pilipino na mag-alsa laban sa diktatura.

Ito'y pag-alaala rin sa untimely death ni Teddy Diaz, isang mahusay na musician at gitarista ng The Dawn, isa sa mga paborito kong band nuong dekada 80.
