A week later after the tragedy in metro manila brought by typhoon ONDOY, I browse in the net and my attention was focused on this clip. I really cant imagine how this traumatic scenario came into reality. I usually imagined metro manila as somewhere that people may find joy and entertainment yet after that faith-loosing event, it’s somewhat a hell for the many whose experiences are sudden enough.
News had been squandered about what most of the victims had been passing through. But the most empathetic and attention-seeking move that most people did are the spirit of good being shared through DAMAYAN. Several countries of the world has even have a little share of how to send their sympathy to affected Filipinos even by sending a little help and through prayers. This is only a real fact that we as human beings, connected altogether in times of trouble.
Several shows in the televisions here and abroad are portraying acts of sympathy, some through campaign for donations and the like. It’s really worthwhile to see that such practice is still inplace.
Many have questioned the intervention of the divine presence in that scenario. Some even wondered that what had happened is a divine will for the people to realize their sins and to go back to God. But the most catching argument is that, do we really need those fortuitous events to happen just for us to practice the sense of sharing and helping others? Do we really need to suffer hardship before we realize our faults and live with God? Answers to these reflected questions are in our mind already. As a true Samaritan and a good human being, let us just be true enough to what we ought to be as a good Christians. Let our spirit always alive predestined to help even without tragedy, let our thoughts always centered to God no matter how good our living environment would be.
