While Iran and USA are so busy hating each other and while Prince Harry and Megan Markle are so into each other that they turned down the opportunity to be United Kingdom’s royal role models who can inspire and help the needy, us here in the impoverished Philippines are in the process of surviving and standing up from the wrath brought about by the littlest and most active volcano in the planet.
With this Taal volcano devastation, we are too busy that we no longer have the time to hate another country. We too are too busy that we no longer care if royal highnesses Harry and Megan will live a normal quiet life.
How I wish we Pinoys can bring Taal Volcano to the negotiation table to achieve peace and harmony. How I wish we Pinoys are called by her majesty, Taal Volcano, for an emergency meeting so as to finalize talks about our security and funding of her geography.
Now tell me. Who among the Americans, the Brits and Iranians are facing the bigger challenge in this so called life if compared to the Filipinos? The hardest battle a nation can encounter is the walloping clash against nature. But guess what? We Pinoys chose to be tough and resilient despite the fact that our mood and spirit for now has been covered by thick volcanic ash!
