Message from Anderson Cooper to the Filipinos
When everything else is taken away, broken, battered, soaked, raw, stripped, bare, you see things, you see people as they really are. This week in Tacloban, Samar and Cebu, amidst the hunger and thirst, the chaos and confusion, we've seen the best in the Filipino people, their strength, and their courage. I can't get it out of my mind. Imagine the strength it takes for a mother to search alone for her missing kids, the strength to sleep on the street near the body of her child
We've seen people with every reason to despair, every right to be angry, instead find ways to laugh, to love, to stand up, to move forward.
A Storm breaks wood and bone, brings hurt and heartbreak. in the end, the wind, the water the horror it brings is not the end of the story.
With aid and assistance compassion and care, this place, these people.. they will make it through. They already survived the worst. Their about perhaps tired and traumatized, but they are not broken.
Mabuhay Philippines! Maraming Salamat for all you've shown us, Maraming Salamat for showing us all how to live
