As the spirit of Christmas lights up our homes and fills our table with food, we must remember our brothers in Mindanao whose lives were destroyed in an instant at the onslaught of Typhoon Pablo. This is the best time to reawaken the spirit of volunteerism through ‘Bayanihan’ efforts and show to the world that it takes more than a super typhoon to dampen the true meaning of people power.  Our leaders are calling on us all to be that spark of hope for the victims of Typhoon Pablo and to make Christmas possible even at the most trying times.
