I was deeply sad when I heard from news that a super typhoon hits my homeland on Nov. 8, 2013. Super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) devastated parts of the Visayas and the destruction is so massive and unthinkable.
I'm so relieved that my family back home is not affected by this destructive typhoon because our province is in Luzon and very far from the path of Yolanda. It's so heartbreaking to see that my countrymen suffered a lot for they lost almost everything from them. Thousands have died and many are still hungry.
It's good to know that a lot of people are reaching out to help even other countries like Australia, US, UK, Japan and more have sent their aid to the Philippines and will help rebuild the devastated community in the Visayas.
I am praying that people will slowly rebuild their lives back again but I know it will take a lot of time to heal their wounds and suffering but there is hope.
