We Will Overcome

When I first started this blog, I promised myself that I would only write about all things sunshine-y and positive.

These past few days, however, it’s been a bit difficult not to focus on and write about the depressing images of houses being swept away by raging waters, and streets turning into lakes.  It’s practically all I see on TV and out my window.

And then this…

I love how hopeful this statement is.

I love how it speaks of the resilience of the Filipino spirit.

I love that it is positive and determined.

Because the Filipino is precisely that and more.  We’ve proven it during Ondoy and Pepeng, we can definitely do it again.

Yes, we are stronger than these rains.

Yes, we will definitely overcome.
