Saturday morning proved to be a challenging day for us. This is the first time in decades that our area was flooded due to
Our house was full of people by Saturday afternoon. The flood has risen until hip level outside so people are flocking to our house to seek shelter. Good thing is that we have lots of food because it's Mom's birthday and she was supposed to have a party.
A disaster can bring the best and sadly the worst out of people. I saw a lot of people helping each other and despite the gloomy weather, people still try to find something to laugh about.
The bad thing was some of our valuables got stolen. It was saddening coz some of these people are those that we're trying to help. Dad just hugged me and said that we can replace those things. We just have to be thankful that we're still safe and dry.
Seeing my mom and dad working tirelessly (despite their old age) to help those who are in need, I can't help but be proud of them.
I hope everyone is safe.
