Our country was suddenly in the spotlight appearing in many news reports and social media forums. However, we were not talked about because of a pageant win or there's a new talent discovered in an episode of Ellen -- we caught everyone's attention because Yolanda, the monster typhoon which has entrapped our country in that dark weekend, left our countrymen homeless with a death toll that might reach a tragic 10,000.
We all saw how our countrymen are doing out there where not only they had to contend with the heartbreak of losing their loved ones but they now need many things that we take for granted in order to survive.
So for this difficult season, let us all do our share. Forget first the selfies, the OOTD's, or even the sharing of your favorite pet videos.
We should just all stop and HELP.
Let us show everyone that even if typhoon YOLANDA bitched her way into our system, we have something that no amount of wrath could damage.
Our Filipino spirit.
