My thoughs, prayers (and donations) go out to those living in the Philippines. I'll never understand why those who have so little seem to be hit the worst.

I served in the Philippines nearly 2 years ago. My heart goes out to each one of my pinoy friends. If there was ever a people who could prosper and overcome these tribulations it would be those in the Philippines. from all of us here in America, mahal kayo namin (we love you all)

I serverd there much longer ago than you Irrelevant, in Cebu. My heart also aches, but I hope we can get enough media coverage in the US to get people to organize and help these people with actual resources. I know the Church is already working on it, and I am encouraged that UNICEF is also already under way, but these wonderful people are going to need a lot of help of not just food to recover from this.
