It is sad that some people think that Filipinos affected by the earthquake in the Visayas particularly by the Bohol quake were being punished. Little do they know that it is just a warning sign. The real disaster could be going to the direction of those  judgmental beings. Read this report that made sense:

Bohol quake is a warning of things to come, experts warn

By: GMA News Online

Experts warn that many parts of the Philippines—including the nation’s densely-populated capital—are long overdue for major earthquakes, and we can’t entirely be sure where the next big one will strike.

But one thing is for certain: it’s only a matter of time.

Mario Aurelio, Laboratory Head of the Structural Geology and Tectonics of the UP National Institute of Geological Sciences (NIGS) laments the lack of comprehensive knowledge about the country’s numerous geologic faults.

If it’s our time, there’s nowhere to hide – especially when facing God’s wrath! So, the least we can do is to help instead of hurting people who are already suffering either from the trauma or from sleepless nights that they have to bear – when aftershocks and even low intensity earthquakes continue to hunt them. Trusting that we can have that special place for eternity is the greatest comforter. It doesn’t really matter if we stay or disappear from present existence. This is just temporary and we are destined to be in that better place – wherever it might be!
