Sendong’s Wrath

In Weather on December 20, 2011 at 12:29 pm

Cagayan de Oro,which means River of Gold is now a river of cold,dead bodies.It’s Crisis-mas in the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan after storm Sendong (international codename:Washi) lashed into parts of Visayas and Mindanao.It is now considered as the world’s deadliest storm for 2011 with death toll rising up to more than a thousand plus the total number of displaced families.The cities are running out of coffins and cadaver bags and funeral parlors could no longer accommodate the bodies,hence forcing the city government to just bury them in mass graves.

Truly a heartbreaking sight.Too much for us,Filipinos to bear.But seeing these kids,their awareness and willingness to extend help and reach out to our less-fortunate countrymen,in their own little way,can’t help but feel optimistic,even in this dire situation.

Filipinos are known for their resilience.Our strength,courage and great faith will pull us through.We will overcome this.

God,have mercy on us…

  1. If ever a people needed help, it is now. If we skip buying one thing for ourselves this season, and send the money there, it would benifit everyone.

    • After seeing these pics,I’ve realized that I have no right to complain,and that I’m blessed! Big thanks!
