I’m afraid I have been neglecting my blog for the past few weeks. Several things have consumed me and my time. Or so it seems, I’m finding excuse for my negligence.
Same thing applies for the past two days, sadly.
Metro Manila and its neighboring areas, districts and regions are heavily affected by typhoon “Maring” (International name: Trami). Most can blame the weather all day long — even throughout their lifetime — to encapsulate such event. But I say, bad weather and Mother nature has nothing to do with the series of unfortunate events as of late.
Man is obviously to blame. Blame poor zoning, blame overpopulation, blame abuse. Blame human negligence.
And now, we local citizens, are experiencing the results. Now we are experiencing the inconvenience such tragedy has caused.
All hope is not lost. An optimistic view still exists only if people will take heed of Mother Nature’s warning.
