In times like this, it’s amazing to see Pinoys from around the globe helping and reaching out to our fellowmen who are victims of the said tragedy. Such a commendable act and may God bless everyone who have extended their empathy and helped in their own ways.
I may not be directly affected by what have happened last weekend, but I once mourned for losing a friend due to a tragedy similar to this. It was during typhoon Feria’s wrath in 2001, killing hundreds of people including my very good friend, her mother, three of her siblings and her cousin. My friend and her mom’s bodies were never found. May they rest in peace.
These are the times when we wish we could do more. I just hope I was able to contribute something, even just a little, through my blogging.
As a side note, I was one of the Facebook members who saw Jacque Bermejo’s comments. Just like most of us, I was also enraged and after making some verifications, I posted this entry. Of course I also doubted if this is real as it could be a case of another (alleged) Facebook hacking like this (warning: explicit content!). Anyway, whether this comment came from the real Jacque or not, it is something that no one would want to hear at these times.
Moving on, I am happy to hear that my officemates, friends and fellow bloggers who are from Marikina, Pasig and Rizal are safe. Their numbers were also “cannot be reach” last weekend which has left me worrying for a few days.
I hope and pray that everyone’s doing fine now. It's difficult to move on, but as what Mahalia said, "should misery come, it will not claim me".
