I don’t normally post my patriotism, but what the hell. One of the most humble and lovable attributes regarding Filipinos is that we people are very resilient.
Approximately twenty typhoons hit the country every year. And this has negatively affected the nation socially and economically, costing the government 5% of the nationwide economy per typhoon season.
My house in Manila has been devastated five times this year already due to the floods. But that does not compare to what happened in Visayas in the past 48 hours. Tacloban City suffered the most. The island province of Bohol, with its citizens enduring from October’s earthquake aftershocks, is now fathoming the second destruction of their beloved community.
Filipinos have indeed been through a lot. Yet we don’t lose hope in these times of hard crises, because we believe that this is just another phase of life.
We manage move on, smile, keep our chin up, disregard all the negativity and look forward at the positive future. And that’s what makes me proud because it restores the faith not only in the human spirit, but also humanity itself.
And because of this, I can simply ignore those few pessimistic rants online by people who ridicule and dismiss any positivity and hope. It’s just pathetic and disgusting to see these contrarian and pseudo-intellectual downers emphasize their notions that this is a tragedy we need to take it seriously and that asking for ‘prayers’, ‘hope’ are futile and being “proud” of the heroism emerged from the tragedy makes us ignorant and stupid.
It’s sad to see that instead of praising the determined, brave and hardworking medical personnel, local government officials, the Armed Forces and the average ordinary citizens volunteering to help others in need, they criticize and attack the people who do. These volunteers are too affected by the tragedy yet they continue to be determined to assist and aid those who were victimized.
These people are courageous survivors and their undividedness and support for one another makes them, makes Filipinos as a whole, unique. This simple and humble solidarity makes us heroic. The Filipino spirit is indeed waterproof for it is more powerful than the most powerful typhoon.
Thank you, people of Tumblr, for giving us donations and sending tons of prayers for our country.
We’re much stronger than any typhoon.

You probably love someone so hard right now that the ground shakes under your feet because it can tell by the way your shadow sways like it’s drunk that you’re very much in love. Even your cells started sending love letters through every neuron and synapse to each individual part of your body; the…
