I cried and sympathized with my older brother when I saw this picture posted by my niece in her FB account, my brother's house at Zamboanga City.
Seeing their hard earned money and sacrifices for years just to build this home been devastated by flood brought by heavy non-stop rain last weekend and early this week is really heart breaking. I can't believe this calamity actually had happened in our hometown.
The photo was taken at the my parents house, that eventually became mine after they passed away and now empty because I migrated to Northern Mindanao, where my brother and his family took refuge for the time being while waiting for the muddy water to subside.
Nevertheless, I'm still thankful to hear that they are all safe.
