I just want to share my experience last Monday when my beloved city was devastated by the flood.
When the heavy downpour started, all I wanna do is to go home with my babies but home isn't that accessible without taking a ride. Good thing a colleague of mine allowed us to hitch to his car. During that time no more motorcycle is willing to wage the strong current of water to our usual route so he need to detour to the longer but safer road. We've been stranded at the super traffic highway of Aluba for an hour or two and we can do nothing about it because some cars who were ahead of us got their cars dead due to the flood. Finally, when we get out of the car at Macasandig (near Precinct 9), we need to walk from the drop point to Ororama Cogon passing through the dark alley of Nazareth. We were freezing cold and hungry but we need to go on. After almost an hour of walking, we finally reached outside of Ororama where we have to wait again for few minutes for a jeepney. Indeed, that experience taught me how to be patient and it made me realize that our living planet needs help from us people. We need to pay much attention to the environment because it is slowly giving us a hard time because of the abuses it gets from us. I do not know how the government would be able to solve the waste problem in our country but one thing is for sure, we need to be a part of the solution this time by doing the things that needs to be done.
|Basically, this is one of the reasons why flood becomes inevitable.|
