GMA News Online reports that actress Kris Aquino reacted via Twitter to "the unanimous Supreme Court (SC) decision to distribute the land of Cojuangco-owned Hacienda Luisita to the farmers."

 

On November 26, Aquino posted a series of tweets that began with: "Tomorrow, Nov. 27, will mark our Dad, Ninoy Aquino’s 79th birthday. I believe PNoy inherited our Dad’s courage in fighting for what is lawful and just."

Then, a few minutes later, she began sharing a "family anecdote." She posted the following tweets:

 

"Since Luisita is very much in the news, may I share a beautiful story? When our Dad was imprisoned during Martial Law, our lolo Pepe Cojuangco visited him (lolo Pepe died in the mid ’70s)."

 

"Our Dad was being offered a deal, everything taken away from our Mom’s parents would be "given back" by the Marcos regime as long as my Dad signed papers admitting his guilt in the made up charges leveled against him."

"My Dad lost his own father at 15 and Lolo Pepe was really like his own father. My Dad told our lolo he’d sign the papers because he didn’t want to see my grandparents suffer and lose so much."

 

"Lolo Pepe told Dad, ’Ninoy kaya namin. I’ll take care of Cory and the kids. You fight for what is right because we believe in you.'"

 

"I hope that gives most of you a clearer picture of what my Mom’s family is like. How they suffered and stood with my Dad and took care of us through the worst. To think, Ninoy Aquino was only their in-law," she "tweeted".


Aquino concluded her story with this tweet: "We respect the Supreme Court, we survived even when they took everything from us, including our Dad’s life-and we will survive even this."
