The Universe is Angry

I just arrived in Manila. I have to be here for a few days to gather data for my dissertation and to facilitate the first of two classes for the CFA review that were assigned to me.

I spent two hours in the airport waiting for a cab. I'm wet, I'm tired, and I'm hungry. My internet connection is wonky, so I can't finish the post that I had originally planned to publish today. But I know that I have no reason to complain as thousands of our countrymen are in a much, much worse predicament as I am.

Given how the rains have hardly abated since early this morning, those of us who are in the relative safety and comfort of our homes can't really do anything at this moment but wait and hope for things get better tomorrow. As soon as we are able to, however, we have a responsibility to do what we can for those who are not as fortunate as we are. There's no doubt in my mind and in my heart that that we all will get though this with our heads held high, as we always have.

Stay safe, everyone.
