out of focus
Pope Francis came to Tacloban City last Saturday to console the survivors of super typhoon Haiyan. It was a very emotional event for everyone in attendance. Pilgrims from all over the country endured the cold wind and rain to listen to his message of mercy and compassion.
I opted to stay home and watched the proceedings on live TV broadcast. I was moved, and realized only then that I, too, am a survivor of this tragedy.
I hope this visit by Pope Francis gave everyone the closure we all need to leave those painful memories behind.
The weather disturbance has been affecting my focus lately, but a little sunshine should be able to fix it.
