We remember the death of Ninoy today, considered to be a hero because he helped restore democracy in the Philippines.
His assassination on August 21, 1983 eventually led to the 1986 People Power Revolution which overthrew the Marcos dictatorship.
We got to talk to OPM rock icon RJ Jacinto about his experience with the late Senator Benigno Aquino, Jr.
"Kasama ko yun sa exile. (Na)-exile kaming dalawa sa Amerika. Si Ninoy Aquino ay napaka-ordinaryong tao; napaka-bait; napaka-sayang kasama; Even when he knew he was alone sometimes, he still fought for what he thought was right for the future of our country."
He also shared his thoughts on what particular traits a hero should have.
"Qualities ng isang bayani ay ang taong willing to sacrifice everything for his country irregardless of money, power; Sacrifice for the country and the future of his children in this country."
