I feel sad but mostly annoyed with the Yolanda victims. I see what they are going through and I pity them, but the recent events are getting in to my nerves. Our government was ill-prepared. They could have spent funds for these kinds of disaster, but since corruption is rampant and maybe the government had other plans for all the money they have, so they didn’t. Could they have saved more lives and properties if they were prepared for the super typhoon? Maybe. Maybe not. What happened was a natural cause (if the issue about microwaves and military involvement is not yet proven) thus it was beyond human control. We can try as much as we can to save everyone’s lives but we can’t. People die. I’m not saying these people deserved to die, but rather we should understand that most of the time, what we do is not enough. Days before Yolanda’s arrival people were warned and were asked to be ready for it. I’ve seen in the news those people who were securing their houses, buying supplies and evacuating. But I’ve also seen those who didn’t take the typhoon seriously. There were people who refused to leave their houses near the shore. There were people who took videos of the storm surge itself and I heard them laughing whenever water reaches their toes. I do not know what these people’s reasons were, and I do not know if these people are still alive (I hope they are). What I am trying to say is that these people were given a choice to increase their chances of survival during the storm. Their actions greatly contributed to what they are experiencing right now. We cannot blame them because they didn’t want it to happen, and no, we cannot blame it to others as well. Again, the typhoon was nobody’s fault.
As of now, people have been working their asses out to send help to the victims who, as reported, resulted to crime such as looting and killing for survival. There are difficulties in sending relief goods because (in my opinion)  the places hit were gravely destroyed, thus the impassable roads,  communication is down so they don’t exactly know where all the survivors are,  corpses are everywhere so manpower is divided,  the Philippines is an archipelago, so it would really take time to collect and deliver all of them and,  corruption and alleged issues of corruption. At tragedies like this some people still have time to be selfish and cause whatever confusion to delay all the help for who-knows-why. To the people who continues to cause trouble like this, go to hell.
To those who are safely snuggled in their homes doing nothing but to rant and rant about the delayed help, sorry but volunteers are not superheroes. So why don’t you go help them and make packing faster?
As for the victims, I know you are growing impatient, hungry, thirsty and cold but seriously, you don’t really have to be bitches about it. Do you really have to go by “survival of the fittest” and hurt other victims as well? This is rude but I think these people should be punished. You cannot just do whatever you want and say you have no choice and they are victims and so on. Please, be more patient and have faith that this too shall pass.
Nakakalungkot isipin na sa movies na lang ako nakakaramdam ng kilig. Hay
Because we’re music kids, we can be like this. :)
