I am saddened by the effects and the damages that are caused by the calamity that hit our country these past few days until now. Many homes were damaged, many families left broken and many lives were taken by this disastrous typhoon that struck the Philippines and other neighboring countries. According to the news, typhoon Yolanda is one of the strongest typhoons ever recorded in the history of the world. It is very disheartening that many of my countrymen were banged by the wrath of typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan). What I have seen in the television really broke my heart. Their places (Samar, Leyte, and other areas affected by the typhoon) and most of all, their lives will never be the same again.
“Lord, help us. Protect us with Your mighty hands. Send Your angels to cover us. Heal our wounds – physical and emotional. I know You have better plans for us and we will always trust in You. We lift up everything in to you. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
My prayer is for all Yolanda’s victims. Kapit bisig parin tayo, mga Pilipino! As what Vice Ganda said in Showtime, “Bagyo ka lang, Pilipino kami”. Babangon tayo!
