Heroism During Non-Stop Rains

A country of victims is also a country of heroes, risking their lives so others will live. This is the Philippines, the country we love. – Tony Meloto

Placed on red alert by weather and disaster officials since Monday night, Metro Manila turned into a “waterworld” on Tuesday as the southwest monsoon unleashed torrential rains nearly nonstop. Roads have turned into rivers and the suspended railways are becoming the visible landmarks of the metro.

The flooding – neck-deep in some areas – forced tens of thousands of people to flee their homes, closing schools, offices and businesses, yet the beauty of the Filipino soul rises above these murky waters!
