Live With Faith

Thirty-four hours passed by when a 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit Bohol.

It was around eight in the morning yesterday when my brother woke me up and told me to get up because of the earthquake that was going. The moment I have my senses for real, I felt like a dancing drunk and I can really feel that our house was shaking, things were moving and it was like crazy. That phenomena is not really a nice wake up call in the morning. No one likes that feeling to be scared first thing in your day!

We listened directly to the news and we found that Carmen, Bohol was the epicenter of that earthquake. Bohol felt 7.2 magnitude and Cagayan de Oro felt 4.0 magnitude earthquake.

The next Island of Bohol is Cebu. These two province were affected so much by this quake, mostly infrastructure damages but the sad news is, there are people who died in this natural disaster. I have a friend who is working/living in Cebu and I am glad he is safe and sound. He even shared how it feels like to be in 9th floor when it happened. There’s still aftershocks happening in Central Visayas and people really felt it and it shakes them.

This is one of the old Churches in Bohol. ūüė¶ Check BBC News post http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-24530042 and Inquirer.net article http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/507169/6-dead-power-down-as-7-2-quake-hits-bohol

The damaged that this earthquake brought was at least lesser. Why? October 15 was a regular Holiday and no classes and no work. We should be at least thankful that it was a Holiday because if not, the damaged must been even worse including the life that been taken away by this disaster.

Praying for Philippines!

A note to life – live with faith!

Why people so afraid of?

If there’s an incident that will happen, would you do precautionary action to avoid it?¬†If there’s any calamity coming and you have the ability to stop it, would you really stop it?

As I wake up this morning, many questions suddenly poke my mind! What’s the sense of all the safety regard from the things that can’t really be avoided. I got this imagination of mine, if there’s any calamity coming towards me… MAYBE I’ll just sit around and waiting for it. It’s a matter of Life and Death. If it is my time then let it be. After a long run, death is waiting for us and our body will decay. Why people are so afraid to die when the price of it seeing God? Is it because, life is so beautiful and living is less painful and more happiness it brings? There could more happier living with God’s grace. It’s an everlasting life and you will see¬†eternity!

Just a thought from Shira!

When Calamity Strikes

The difference when a calamity strikes metro manila and other provinces:

Metro Manila – everything stops, everybody helps, The MEDIA is focused on the efforts of different celebrities, groups and politicians on their effort to help.

Other provinces especially in Mindanao – The shows on major networks goes on… if you turn on your tv you see them dancing, singing, smiling… if there are efforts…not visible enough. media will just show the updates on their allotted time slot.

SO TRUE! good thing BBC WORLD and CNN shows updates on what happened in CDO and Iligan.
