The tragedy brought by typhoon Ondoy reminds me of the story of Noah's Ark in the Bible. And though this dilemma is an awakening for all of us Filipinos, for all our little and big ways of caring less to our environment, still it helps us unite as one family by means of giving support to each other.
As I contemplate on the impact that the situation brought to us, it seems to me that it's about time that we must know as individuals our role and responsibility to our Mother Earth. This is no longer a moment of pointing fingers to one another but its about time to realize that we all are responsible as God's tenants in this planet. And that we have no right to question God why such thing happens but rather look within ourselves and ask what makes it happen. Sometimes and even most often, our tragedies are made out of our vey own follies.
I continue to pray that in this time of nothingness we'll learn to hold on for what are actually the essentials. So help us God.
