Nevertheless, we cannot bring back time and destruction is already upon us. I just pray for strength, especially for the people who were badly affected by this calamity. May they remain strong and faithful to be able to weather this storm that has literally and figuratively destroyed their lives.
There are a lot of pictures of the devastation that TS Sendong did and I do not need to post it here. What we need now is to help our fellow countrymen to be able to pick up the pieces and continue on with their lives.

You can go to the webpage of Philippine Red Cross for information on how to donate. I believe television networks are also accepting donations in cash or in kind for the 88,000 or so evacuees. There are also a lot of other NGOs and private organizations mobilizing to help out these people in need. Water, food and clothing and blankets are what they need the most now. I hope we can share even if a little bit of our blessings to these people who have lost everything.
