Typhoon Yolanda restoration efforts in the Philippines are far from over  but man-made disasters started to happen as New Year celebrations unfold. This is despite the Department of Health’s anti-firecrackers campaign that made them dance all the way through various communities. The dance promo and the rest of the information drive obviously did not work. Read this:

Philippine New Year celebrations leave hundreds injured

by: www.bbc.co.uk

At least one person has been killed and nearly 600 others injured by New Year fireworks and gunfire in the Philippines, officials have said.

A baby was killed by a stray bullet, and a teenager is reported to have been killed by a firecracker display. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-25566056


It’s always been known that the Filipino masses need ample discipline to be able to live safely. The poor mentality just get the worst of them prioritizing fun over safety. Tougher regulations are needed badly before innocent children get killed again due to stray bullets and body parts get amputated from firecracker accidents and mishandling.

Getting Over Paul Walker

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
When a famous, handsome and good-natured person died, we can’t help but regret the bad news. The death of the Fast and Furious star, Paul Walker is still very fresh in our hearts and mind but acceptance is the only solution to get over his passing. As the New Year is approaching, let’s watch this tribute to Paul Walker once again:

A Tribute to Paul Walker


Posted at YouTube by: Fast & Furious

No doubt, he’s a great guy after all but because we are all mortals, we just have to bear the consequences of our existence. Death is as natural as being born and even if how painful it is to witness the death of a loved one, life goes on for the surviving family and friends. May Paul Walker rest in peace. He indeed had a beautiful life!

Shot a dog and put in a Trash Bag?

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
What kind of person who would shot a helpless dog and leave it for dead inside a trash bag? Might be a very psychologically disturbed nut-case roaming around the streets looking for trouble. Watch this and see if you will care for a dog in that state same as  the animal lover in this video:

Rescue Story: Dog Shot and Left in Trash Bag Tied to a Fence (January 2013)

Mother nature can be very kind to both people and animals. There’s this strong force around us that won’t just let a hidden crime go into oblivion. Perhaps this can serve as a motivator to other animal lovers to reach out to areas where there’s rampant animal cruelty – because if we don’t care for our dogs, who would?

Due to the powerful effects of social media, media propaganda cannot anymore cover the widespread poverty in the Philippines. As you travel around, just look beyond street walls, under the bridges and hidden dwellings. This can just be a short walk from where you are. If robbery or other crimes are rampant in one area, this can only mean that many poor and desperate people are living there. This can be clearly seen through calamity aftermath. Know the reasons why Philippines is a disaster prone country:

5 Reasons the Philippines Is So Disaster Prone

By: Dan Vergano

The unofficial death toll for Super Typhoon Haiyan is expected to exceed 10,000 people in the Philippines, but the country is no stranger to catastrophic natural disasters.

From earthquakes to volcanic eruptions to previous super typhoons, death tolls following cataclysmic events in the Philippines tend to be high. Here are 5 reasons why: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2013/11/131111-philippines-dangers-haiyan-yolanda-death-toll-rises/

 

If there’s no substantial remedies in empowering people who don’t know any better in terms of livelihood, it’s just a matter of time that those who have nothing will loot those who have. Yes, Filipinos are very strong when it comes to trials but this strength can also work against us when we are already competing for the needed resources. It is a must to work not just to eat in a daily basis but to gain financial stability in life!
