Typhoon Yolanda is one, if not, the biggest disaster of our generation. Its grim aftermath was beyond comprehension. Dead people, destructed villages, unprepared government, suffering… all depressing.
But Yolanda somehow triggered the macrocosm of our society straight towards our face. She painted to us how we are as a people facing this fate of adversity. Our polarized criticisms, support system, political bickering and failure of systems are clear manifestations of our collective thoughts as one society. We may be facing all forms of disputes, especially our trust and faith to our government and its leaders but everything is part of a nation's dynamism.
