After all the stormy weather here in the Philippines, calm has been restored and those many thousands of people affected by the floods can slowly repair their homes and clean up after the destructive forces of nature.

Filipinos are very resilient people, and they certainly must be when they live in a country that experiences so many natural disasters such as typhoons, earthquakes, volcanoes, floods and landslides. Some of these are aggravated by our warming climate, but that is a whole other story. Instead of sitting around and waiting for any government support that may not even arrive, they help each other to re-build their community as quickly as possible.
