Been reading and watching news about the wrath of the typhoon here in Manila and frankly, I’m sick of it. Floods here, floods there. Let’s pray for these people, let’s donate some goods, let’s help the stranded.
It’s the same shiz every freaking year. Typhoon. Floods. People in distress. Asking God and government to save the “victims.” On repeat every year for the past ‘n’ years.
Have we not learned anything? It has been the same scenario for so many years! Einstein said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results.” Well, we then are crazy.
Not to sound like the bad guy here but we shouldnt all just be “aww, kawawa naman sila” or “grabe naman ang ulan” or “ipagdasal na Lang natin sila.” Sure, helping is good but There are actual solutions so that we can eventually eradicate this problem. Of course, it’s quite impossible to give our sewage system an immediate make-over but I’m a firm believer in one of the simplest solutions – disposing of your garbage properly. Garbage is one of the major reasons for flooding. How many times have I seen people just carelessly throw their cigarettes or candy wrappers and other trash out in the streets and then they’re shocked we have flooding in th city?!
Let’s stop this madness.
And since I know this is such a short, incomplete post on the subject, here’s a cute photo of my two cats during the height of the “typhoon” so that you’d excuse me. 🙂
