Today is indeed the darkest hour of our beloved country. Yesterday, we always think that the consequences won't be occurring for the next fifty years or more. But we have underestimated the fury of Mother Nature.
Now, we are suffering the consequences brought about by our recklessness; but we didn't expect it. It acted so soon. On a spur of moment, the modern infrastructures, sleek buildings and roads were transformed into a solid mass which imposes great danger to all of us. It took several years to build these, through thick and thin. Today, however, Mother Nature took only a matter of hours to destroy what we have built for the past decades of development. Our manpower was just nothing; a useless force with regards to Mother Nature's.
Lots of lives were affected.
Lots of lives were lost.
A lot of people have suffered too much.
It's quite unfair to think that the innocent ones have to suffer the most, and the ones who are guilty of their actions didn't suffer that much.
Let's all hope for the best.
Pray to God that the affected people would still be safe through the rest of the night.
And most of all,
WE SHOULD HAVE LEARNED ONE VALUABLE LESSON. AND WE ALREADY KNOW THAT.
We can't afford to have an encore performance of Ondoy.
