I can hear some people sing Christmas carols while some artists perform a concert to help raise fund for the Haiyan survivors. I remember during my times when we would just go out from town to town to raise fund to be used to rent for our sound system like microphone, drum set for our summer events. Those were the days when worry seems to be non-existent. With the earthquake, war, flood and typhoon that happened one after the other, I think that we need to stand as one to overcome these all.
At this time, help is most needed by our fellow countrymen. We cannot just sit and do nothing because a lot of people need continuous help at least until they finally recover. The spirit of Christmas is in the air where more than 30 countries offered assistance to help those affected by super typhoon to recover and rebuild lives back to normal again.
Despite the disasters that happened to our country, people still stand strong and hopeful for a new day that Christmas will be as merry like before and nothing happened in the past. I guess the best thing is that they believe that tomorrow will bring a new day while they face the reality of today with all their strength.
