Maybe you will not agree with me but I say that Filipinos are "eternal optimist" ... although they have to suffer in their lives many time they will look on it from the better side. Life for them has greatest value, you may lost everything but when you alive you are blessed. This picture is after typhoon Ondoy 2009 in Marikina area, where we brought some goods and clothes for people. No one want to remember these days even until now especially those lost their family members or relatives. But in such like this difficult situation I saw also on faces these people smile, joy ... like they wanted to tell me, Yes, It happens, my house it complete destroyed, but I am here ... life is going on. Enjoy life. I know that inside was also big grieve and sadness but ... "Eternal Optimist". (To compare of similar situations in Europe when the people come to depressions, counting what was damaged, how much they lost ... I think the differences of reaction of people are very visible.)
