Philippines has been devastated by Typhoon Ondoy, much like New Orleans was devastated by Katrina. Manila and the surrounding areas hasn't been hit this hard in over 40 years. Most of the city, consisting of 15- to 18 million people is under water.

I have friends in the Philippines, and I am still waiting to hear if they are safe. :-(
God bless our brothers and sisters in Philippines. I post this blog in hopes that anyone who is in a position to help may do so. I have been blessed in my life, and I will continue to pay it forward.
