The aftermath.





This massive flooding in Manila has never happened before - not at this magnitude. Many of those people living in these areas have never experienced such floods previously despite the heavy rains.

I have seen images of flash floods too in other countries. Does that mean that the Earth is in imminent danger? Then we are in imminent danger! Our Earth is dying, To be more specific, it is being killed, done to death by us. Killed by the pursuit of money. We inherited the Earth, but the earth is dying on us.

I wouldn't be surprise if an ecological apocalypse loom in the future. Or is there still a solution to our problem? Can we possibly know what lies ahead?

I think we owe it to ourselves to find out...

Actually Odette, dispite what so called "experts" and scam artits like Al Gore say, just as many experts are saying this is a natural phase. The earth is going through changes that man can't start or stop.

Either way, I'm sure Cedric found his way out of the area.

Email me when Cedric checks in Odette. Off the top of my head I can think of 3 good reasons he may not be able to. Logistical as in he can't reach a phone or his is dead. Technical as in all the towers are out or phone lines are down. Or he could be so caught up in helping others he has not been able to get a working means of communication. I have seen myself in the 3rd situation more often then I would like to admit.

Hi Dette! Whatta rain!!! The greenhouse effect must have bore a large hole in the sky!
These pics reached us here also in the Middle East. Really bad!! Yesterday, POLO (Phil. Overseas Labor Office) sent an advisory appealing to all Filipinos to donate generously for the flood victims. A relief center will be set up in our area where we could deliver our used clothes and goods for pick-up. Cedric is old enough to figure out things for himself, don't worry my friend.

Odette said...

Thank you everyone for your prayer. Cedric is home now. The school did not allow any student to leave the campus unless a parent fetch them. School officials could not call us though because their phone lines are down. So they let the student sleep in the school and provided them meals.
Just so you would know, even my son school was flooded. They were all staying on the 3rd floor. But everyone were safe.

Hi Odette, I stopped in to check on Cedric, what a great school he goes to. That's the safest place for the students. Hang in there, I'm praying that the next storm will be a whimper.

Hugs, Mimi

Odette, I feel sorry for what happen in Manila. Hope you and your family is ok. My heart goes out to everyone who lost their family or their houses and stuffs. Hope everything will be okay soon..

We have had a massive earthquake that killed 200,000 ppl. And flooding that killed hundreds. Hope we can anticipate these things in the future.

I really hope everything will be alright soon, Odette.. I'll pray for you and your friends and family.
