Been watching the news all day, and I cannot help but feel overwhelmed with what is happening around me. Other people or countries might see the hopelessness of the situation, but they don’t know who we are. We are Filipinos. And everyday Heroes emerge with dire situations. So to all people who extend their helping hands to save anyone they could, we salute you, Bayaning Pinoy.
Some inspiring message in twitter:
I think Filipinos are the perfect example of “not waiting for the storm to pass but learning to dance in the rain.”
God chose the Philippines because He knows only the Filipinos could handle this tragedy with all their strength.
Dear Typhoon, you might bring us Filipinos some tragic things in the Philippines but you can never take away our smiles.
Filipinos will always be some of the most resilient, resourceful and hopeful people out there.
Philippines is a very beautiful country, it may not be a rich country but places here are spectacular. Filipinos are one-of-a-kind people.
Filipinos swimming in chest-deep floods still with a smile on their faces. Having fun despite the hardship, only in the Philippines.
Kudos to the nameless heroes who put their lives on the line to help rescue our fellow Filipinos! Let’s pray for their safety as well.
Today is a test of heart and a test of faith for Filipinos. Kapit lang.
We have God, Philippines. Never, ever forget that.
