Huffington Post story about the Philippines
A very good article on the Huffington Post by Virginia M. Moncrieff talks about the recent storm, Typhoon Ketsana (locally Typhoon Ondoy) and how it has brought about the blame game for the country looking for someone (or some government) to point to after the deaths and damages are starting to unravel.
I like what she’s trying to say, that people are always looking for someone to blame.
I’ve been living in the Philippines for about a year now from San Diego and my opinion is that I honestly just wish that the government would make it harder for the people to blame them. The government has been so corrupt and crazy that blaming them is REALLY easy to do. So I honestly empathize with the Filipinos. Hopefully, the elections next year will bring about a better leader. Hopefully, this country can rise back up after this truly devastating storm!
