Last week was a tough episode for most of us living in Metro Manila. WIth total rainfall almost close to Ondoy, the number of death equalled to 49 along with millions of losses in property and farm land. Indeed, this is one event I hope to forget. I didn’t bear seeing fellow pinoys especially kids, lolos and lolas suffer like that. On the other side, I’m glad that the government agencies and different organizations braved the floods and rescued thousands of people. Truly bayanihan, truly pinoy! Here are some of the pictures floating around the web that will surely make you speak “every Filipino is a hero”:
