Typhoon Yolanda just left the Philippines, and it left us in total disarray.  So many lost lives, so many shattered properties, so much shattered dreams.  The extent of damage is so vast especially in the towns and municipalities in Leyte, Samar, Aklan, Iloilo and other neighboring places. It is so heartbreaking, so depressing.

From social media sites to the telecasts on National Television one can clearly see the great loss of lives and property and  we just can't help but ask ,WHY did this happen to our country? And yet  questions just keep piling up and answers just can't be found neither.

What is evident amidst all this though is the resiliency of the Filipinos and the ability to rise above all else. For indeed, now is not the time to blame anyone or even the government. It is instead a time to pick up the pieces and start all over again... NO MATTER WHAT!!

My heart goes out for all our kababayans in Tacloban, Palo, Samar, Aklan, Iloilo and all the other places elsewhere which have been badly affected. I am one with the rest of the Filipino people in praying for the best to still come our way. For all those who have lost their loved ones, my sincerest condolences.  In my own little way I will do my share to help and reach out, even only through prayers.
