I have several kikay posts in line, but no, this is not the right time to post something cheerful.
I may be in the office, but my mind and heart is somewhere else; worrying about many things.
People [relatives, friends and strangers] who lost their belongings, or their homes, and worse, their loved ones.
People who, as of the moment, are still clinging to their rooftops, hungry and exhausted, and with diminishing hopes for rescue.
It's high time we heed the call for help.
Let's donate whatever we can, extend a hand and volunteer, and offer prayers.
Let's show the bastard Ondoy/Ketama that Filipinos can bounce back, as a nation, stronger, wiser and with bigger hearts; and yes, we hit back harder.
And please, let this be a wake up call of our planet's sick condition - go green, manage your wastes, you can start in your own homes. Say no to plastic, walk more, plant more, maintain your vehicles, the ways to save the planet are limitless.
My friends and I are arranging our own donation campaign, you can start by extending assistance to your officemates, neighbors or even strangers.
