Mabuhay ang Pilipino

Typhoon Ondoy has caused so much damage to our country but there is one bright side to all that has happened. I'm so proud of how the Filipino people have united to help our fellow countrymen who are victims of the typhoon. Many relief centers have been set up and all are always overflowing with volunteers and donations. Multinational companies have donated cash, kind and even lent company trucks and helicopters to help in rescue and deployment of relief goods. Facebook and Twitter has become a real time bulletin board on where people can volunteer, what goods are needed and what areas still need relief goods. Everyone from celebrities to politicians to students are doing what they can to help, and its incredible how much love and support is being given.

I'm so proud to be a Filipino.
