Filipinos are resilient. No matter how bad our current situation is; we manage to smile, to joke around and to continuously look at the brighter side of life despite the daunting scenarios around us. Seemingly, torrential rains have caused many places in the Philippines to flood. And just before typhoon Maring poured, a sea mishap occurred in Cebu. Yet life has to go on just like the constant ticking of the clock.
Since my childhood days, I frequently bathed and played under the rain with my playmates and enjoyed every moment of it. Before the cloudburst, we would draw a huge sun on the ground to prevent it from falling. But deep inside I was wishing with all my might for a downfall, lol. And to this very day, my sentiments remain.
With thousands of people affected by this horrendous typhoon, I have no right to whine in any way; more so to be an ingrate. We are all fine and continue to eat regular meals. Most importantly, we manage to smile despite the downpour. Keep safe everyone!
