Congratulations to Jun Reyes and the Benigno Aquino Foundation for the Last Journey of Ninoy! And to ABS-CBN for showing the film.
 
I was touched and I cried at the end of the film! The film revived my sense of gratitude to Ninoy who enabled me to savour the freedom I enjoy today. The story of Ninoy and Cory must be told and re-told to all generations so we do not lose the essence of their death. Indeed, the film was able to capture what Ninoy and Cory stood for in the life of every Filipino. I now truly believe in what Ninoy and Cory said - that the Filipino is worth dying and living for!
 
We can not fail them. We must not fail them!
 
Bravo Mr. Reyes (and to your production team) for a  beautiful and well-researched, scripted, produced, and edited masterpiece! Ninoy and Cory must be very happy with your work! As I am! This film must be shown to all students nationwide...and to the public in general .....again and again! It truly inspires!
