Second Chances October 2, 2009Posted by pilibustero in Personal.
Second chance i mean, second chance of life. Had it not been for that mighty poles of bamboo we cling upon, Im not certain if we’re still alive today or had survived the onslaught of typhoon Ondoy still fit and fine. I’m just thankful for an extended existence and more so, the experience of getting near the end. With regards, that I acknowledge the heroism of one of our comrades for courageously braving the raging waters to assemble a makeshift raft that evacuated at least 10 of our neighbors, mostly children. He’s one of the many strangers-turned-heroes, who seized the day and risk their lives for others.
We were in Marikina on that fateful Saturday at the height of the deluge. Everything went off the brink except a cellphone and several cash.
