    The earth often shakes to remind men of their fragility. It is indeed very tragic what has happened in Philippines and my heart goes out to them and I hope they rebuild their battered lives as fast as possible...
    Good writing and keep it up. (Report) Reply

    The Philippines being a small country could not manage the terrible YOLANDO the typhoon. Here there was nothing what man could have done. In future, it seems many islands will be submerged and the earth has no history of any miracles of a landscape being retained for ever..
    But we feel the share of the pangs the islanders have been undergoing.. (Report) Reply
