Some of you may not know that I am a native from the Philippines and it is very heartbreaking for me to see what has happened and is still happening back there.
I sincerely appreciate the concerns of the people that asked and their sincerity. Thank you.
After the typhoon “haiyan” these are the things that I don’t want to see or read on any social media.
Your Selfie Photo
Okay, I get it that you are pretty or good-looking but posting a selfie in this challenging moment, really?
There are a lot of people that are still missing in the Philippines whose family does not even know if that person is alive or not, and here you are posting a selfie. So selfish.
Your Meal Photo
Do you ever read the news or at least read the feeds on your facebook? How could you be so unaware of what is happening around you?
There are thousands, if not hundreds, of people that have not eaten for a day or two or haven’t drink water because help has not arrived to where they’re at.
You may think, these people may not see this, but do you ever think that they have a family that has access to social media.
Okay, yay! You are happy that your new ipad has arrived. But c'mon, there are people out there somewhere needing food and water. The last thing we want to see is somebody pointing out the obvious that he is blessed because he was able to afford a new ipad.
Your Rant (about how slow the help process is)
You think your rant about how bad or inefficient the government of the Philippines for not sending food and water as fast as they can, is helping speed up the whole process?
Don’t be too naïve that Philippines is not just a plain one island, it’s composed of thousands of islands. To get things or people to help to where it should be, will take time.
Philippines is a Strong Nation because it survived the Strongest TyphoonReally, what were you thinking? Don’t bank on this calamity and be too proud to claim that Philippines is a strong nation. No country is strong enough for Mother Nature.
And I want to end this post by saying:
Before you say or write or post something, please be sensitive or be thoughtful.
Prayers will be appreciated for those who have lost their loved ones, for those that are still missing, for those that are still looking, and for those who passed away.
Forgive my honesty on this post, I just feel the need to share this emotion.
Thank you for reading.
