The last 10 days or since super typhoon Yolanda pounded several provinces in Visayas, particularly Tacloban, Ormos, Coron, Palawan and a few others have showed some very, very encouraging signs amid the day-to-day negative news we see on TV and hear on radios.
For one, the international community has greatly encouraged our nation by the outpour of help from various nations – sending tons of food, sea vessels, helicopters, planes, among others.
Obviously, the road to rebuilding what was left but shattered cities and provinces will never be accomplished by just a few people. The city governments nor the national government won’t be able to pull things through successfully apart from everyone’s help, locally and internationally.
President Noynoy Aquino best described the international aid as one that would “greatly ease our burdens”.
More than 3,000 people have died as of the latest stats released by the NDRRMC (National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council) and hundreds of thousands more rendered homeless.
But one thing is sure, we, as a nation, will be able to bounce back, with God’s help along with the support of everyone here and abroad.
Bilib sa Pinoy! Babangon ang mga Pinoy!
