Shaken, Not Broken

Yesterday morning, the province of Bohol was shaken by a 7.2 magnitude earthquake. It was felt in more ten other cities and provinces across the Visayas region, to as far as Zamboanga and Davao in Mindanao. Historical and heritage sites have been damaged. The number of casualties and injured are on the rise as of now, as news trickle slowly from the affected areas.

I believe that historic structures can be rebuilt and restored, but lost lives cannot be restored. Through it all, I know we will be able to recover from this. We are a strong and resilient people. We will deal with this, together.
