I miss you so so much and I’m mentally sending you a message so you’d ACTUALLY send me a message. I guess I’m still hopeful?
Impulsive streak. It was a bangs disaster. WHY.
In behalf of the Filipino people, I would like to thank the international community for the tremendous support that all of you have given to our country. Humility is admitting that we can’t do it by ourselves because Super Typhoon Haiyan is bigger than all of us. My heart breaks for my countrymen but it also swells with gratitude from the generosity of those who have helped us. Bless your kind hearts, all of these will come back to you tenfolds. Thank you once again. And mga Pinoy, kaya natin to. Let’s keep the bayanihan spirit alive.
This is just one of the horrifying images of Super typhoon Haiyan which hit the Philippines (Eastern Visayas region).
It was a total devastation. It hurts watching updates on the news because they’re truly heartbreaking. I am a very emotional person so I cry every time they show images of people crying and/or pleading for food and water, of people in despair over death of loved ones, of dead bodies on the streets. Apart from that, the most affected area which is Tacloban, is in total chaos. Civil disobedience was observed and looting of establishments were reported because people weren’t able to eat for 3 days.
We have experienced a series of natural disasters. A few weeks ago, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake rocked (literally) us which led to several damage to properties and some lives were taken. I ran under the table when the ground was vigorously shaking and was just praying to God to make it stop. It was the strongest earthquake I’ve ever felt in my life. I was so scared and jittery the whole time as the aftershocks extended to a few days after the earthquake. And now, this super typhoon which claimed not only material possessions, but a lot of lives. A whole lot. During the typhoon, I can’t help but think of Game of Thrones because it seemed like the night is dark and full or terrors even if it was daytime.It was that gloomy. Also, it was definitely scary seeing trees violently swaying and the wind howling. That’s not an exaggeration, it was really howling. Typhoon Haiyan (local: Yolanda) was the strongest typhoon I’ve experienced because really, it was the strongest typhoon in the world to date!
Our country has been badly beaten but we will rise again for we are strong and resilient. With our strong faith in God, and in ourselves, we can do it. However, any help, any support, no matter how small will come a long way. So please, we appeal into your hearts to extend help to the Philippines.
