Ninoy Aquino

The greatest living Filipino found a speech from one of the most inspiring person in Philippine history.

Undelivered Speech

Benigno Aquino, Jr.
I have returned on my free will to join the ranks of those
struggling to restore our rights and freedoms through non-violence.

I seek no confrontation. I only pray and will strive for a genuine
national reconciliation founded on justice.

I am prepared for the worst, and have decided against the advice of
my mother, my spiritual adviser, many of my tested friends and a few
of my most valued political mentors.

A death sentence awaits me. Two more subversion charges, both calling
for death penalties, have been filed since I left three years ago and are
now pending with the courts.
