Melancholic ‘Ondoy’

These phots are all from manila Bulletin Online site.

Large areas of Taguig City remain under water as seen in this photograph taken from a plane taking off from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport on Monday afternoon.

I am deeply saddened to see the aftermath of typhoon “Ondoy”…. how can this be possible?? I see pictures of babies burried alive in their homes.. T.T..those innocent lives…

It really tears my heart into pieces….knowing that when this tragedy was happening…I was there having fun in “wildlife” in QC. I want to do something now..but I am stucked here in the office…in front of my computer…. I can’t donate money coz I also need some. I hope my prayer could form a huge voice in heaven for the lost souls…especially the innocent ones….those who aren’t strong enough to defend & save their lives….not old enough to scream for help!!

I just can’t sit here….I just can’t shed a tear…I have to do something…..not just me but all of us!
