"From where I stand... You're beautiful."
Once again, my heart is broken for my friends in the Philippines. After months of devastating storms and earthquakes, Super Typhoon Haiyan has left many areas unrecognizable. She is considered the most powerful typhoon ever recorded. At her peak Friday, the storm lashed the Philippines with winds of 235 MPH - stronger than a Category 5 hurricane - and sent waves of water into the streets. Entire sections of this land have been destroyed and the lives within have been shattered. 1,200 people are dead and that toll is expected to rise as the response continues and the recovery begins. I can only hope people around the globe will step in and do their part to help our brothers and sisters who have lost all. To help, contact the Philippine Red Cross, they need donations and volunteers. Despite the destruction, I know the Filipino people, and I know they will come back from this stronger than ever. We cannot prevent disasters like this, but we can learn from them and prepare for them. As you go throughout your day today, remember those affected and send them your love.  To my friends in the Philippines: Mahal na mahal kita. Manatiling malakas. Maging ligtas. (I hope that is correct)
