Many calamities occurred this year, but to strike this Christmas season, it’s very sad to accept that those victims can’t put up a smile this Christmas. I doubt they can also cheer for new year, because their new life is a bit disappointing too. Bagyong Sendong has stricken Cagayan de Oro and Iligan City so hard. Many believe that illegal logging contributed far enough for this flash flood.
Now the death toll has risen up to 1000. We can save many people, and avoid the numbers to raise. A small donation of P100 is very BIG enough to change the lives of the victims. Imagine if that experience has happened to you, would you afford to smile in this Holiday season?
I don’t believe this event is a wake-up call from God. Man has done this one. If only we are good to our environment, to our Mother Earth, then this could be avoided. Many God is giving us a sign in which we need to reform ourselves.
Let’s start by helping each other. Let’s help those victims in CDO and Iligan City. It’s not too late to reach out a helping hand.
