Pray for the Philippines


Hi guys! Hope you're all safe from last week's calamity. I think we've finally learned from Ondoy, Reming, and all other typhoons that ravaged our country. Rescue and relief operations became more systematic and it looked like more people decided to get involved. I am happy and proud at the same time for all the Filipinos who helped in rescuing those who were in need and helping with relief operations. I'm sure everyone can see by now how we in the Philippines help each other. From what I've seen, it is clear that we can achieve great things if we stand by each other. I think this is a perfect example of how we practice the traditional 'bayanihan' in present times. (To those who don't know, bayanihan was an old practice in the Philippines where people in the community help a family carry their house to a new location) Although the monsoon rains are finally over, let us continue to pray for those families who were deeply affected by the flood and are currently in the evacuation centers. Let's continue to help one another and show the world what we're capable of.
