The Philippines And Typhoon Haiyan. How Tragic That People Who Already Had So Little Now Have Even Less...

Life can be so unfair.
The people of the Philippines already had so little and now the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan means they have even less.
As more and more natural disasters, storms of severe magnitude, disease and food shortages create a living hell on earth for so many, the terrible tolls seem to be felt mainly by those who are already just coping to survive.
Strangely it's very rarely the wealthy suffer in these situations.
If poverty was wealth the poor would be rich beyond their wildest dreams...

  1. All the tears in the world cannot wash away the sadness and pain of these people.Truckloads of money cannot buy lost loved ones back.Surely, we have cause to count our blessings.

  2. The devastation for these people is tragic I agree. I don't agree that devastation and tragedy only affect the poor... The Christchurch, New Zealand earthquakes are an example of that... Rich and poor were equally affected. Perhaps the wealthy have a louder voice for recovery!

    1. Yes, the wealthy are more likely to be heard at least and some actions afforded them,
      The poor don't really matter in the scheme of things.They'll be paid lip service and that's about all. These people needed humanitarian aid well before their latest catastrophe...

  3. The meek shall inherent the Earth.The poor need our help.

  4. The Universal Plan needs serious reviewing - needs to acknowledge that global change contributing to global disasters and creates global suffering has been caused by the abuse of this planet by man himself. When God gave it to us everything was perfect.....and God has the final say!!
