On Kris TV today, Kris remembered crying at the recent State of the Nation Address of her brother, President Noynoy Aquino. She said that if their mother saw them, she would reprimand them as she taught them that in politics, one must not show weakness and emotion. She also acknowledged that with their mother around, things seemed easier and they felt protected.
“Honest to God, kaya kami nagkanda-iyak ng ganon, we never discussed the time na nabaril si Noy… Nung 1987 na binaril siya, we only knew nun magaling na siya,” Kris explained. It was only after her brother has been treated that they learned he was shot, underwent an operation and how fatal the shot could have been.
She also remembered that when they were looking for him, they were informed that he was just with the presidential security group. Her mother only learned about it the next morning while she and her sisters were only informed the evening after he was said to be okay. “Kaya kami siguro nag-tear up the way we did noong Monday was because that was the first time he publicly acknowledged it, na it was his second life and itong lahat ng ‘to from that point in 1987 onwards, parang lahat ito, gift lang talaga at bonus ni God,” she said.
