My first entry goes out to all the Filipinos, as we fight the battle brought by Yolanda.
November 9, 2013 was one of the most devastating days of the year. We were struck by Yolanda, the strongest typhoon that ever hit the Philippines. It affected the Visayas region, Cebu, Samar, Bohol, Tacloban and Leyte, to name some. Houses, establishments, roads and natural resources were destroyed. Thousands of Filipinos living in these affected areas died, and a very large number of people are crying and begging for help. Dead bodies lying on the streets, and families running around to save one another, are the very scenes that these victims went through and are still going through.
It’s time to help our fellowmen. If other nations are able to extend their help to us, there is no reason for us to just watch and sit around. Go out and find ways to help. Our country needs us.
These candles are for the Filipinos who are currently struggling and rising from the disaster of the storm. Keep the faith, and move forward. God bless us.
