PHILIPPINES-FLOOD-TYPHOONA typhoon ravaging the streets of Metro Manila and other parts of the country was certainly unfortunate. But having four consecutive typhoons with almost the same strength was almost unbearable. We never expected this to happen in our country. None of us have foreseen the effects of these typhoons.

Maybe this is what they call climate change. But I think the more appropriate term is nature’s revenge.
We’ve been so cruel, okay. We’re paying the price and it’s worser than we thought. We’ve got no one to blame but ourselves.

It’s silly that we have to realize all these after four typhoons have done much damage. We know it’s too late. And we’re just starting to reform our ways. Maybe that’s life’s reality; reforming comes after chaos.

I couldn’t help but symphatize with those who were directly affected by the typhoons. Those whose hopes for a better future were taken away by floods and left barren by muds. Those children who dreams of finishing school and present their diplomas to their parents.

Why did all these have to happen to them when all those corruptgovernment officials are enjoying life lavishly? So unfair. I’m starting to believe that life was never really fair for the poor.

I sit here in pity. I know pitying would not help. Soon I have to take actions. For now, I want to think that hope never fades despite all those these adversities.

We will move on. We can.
