MANILA -- The family and supporters of the late Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino Jr. marked his 84th birthday by visiting his tomb at the Manila Memorial Park on Sunday.
Like in previous years, yellow flowers surrounded the tomb. Yellow is the color associated with the 1986 EDSA Revolution that was triggered in part by Aquino's assassination in 1983. The peaceful revolt catapulted his widow, Cory, to the presidency, replacing the 20-year regime of Ferdinand Marcos.
One wreath left at the democracy icon's tomb bears the message, "Ninoy Tunay na Bayani." Former President Joseph Estrada and Senator Cynthia Villar also sent flowers, while his children, including former president Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III, visited the tomb.
