"How do you measure the life of a woman or a man?" (from "Seasons of Love")

Cory Aquino was on the cover of Time magazine more than any other President of the Philippines—or any Filipino, for that matter—and was on the covers of other magazines as well. But editors put her on their covers not because her picture would sell magazines. Perhaps the tributes that are now being printed and aired around the world will be a better measure of this woman who is quite possibly the greatest Filipina who ever lived:
