Heartfelt Messages for Filipino People Affected by Super Typhoon Yolanda

Yolanda or also known as Super Typhoon Haiyan has largely devastated my dear country, Philippines.

It is so heart breaking to watch my fellow Filipinos struggling to survive the hiatus that this super typhoon has brought to some parts of the country like Tacloban and Leyte.

Looking at the brighter side of the story, the super typhoon Yolanda pushes the Filipino spirit beyond limitations that even readers of CNN article acknowledge the "indomitable spirit" of Filipino people.

Here is the uplifting message from one of the comments in article posted by CNN:

“Time to get to know the hardy Filipino people…unbelievably resilient, long-suffering, good-natured, uber friendly, loyal, ingenious, and a bunch of survivors.
At the end of the day, the Filipinos will just shake off the dirt from their clothes and thongs, and go about their business…and SMILE. They do not complain much, they will bear as long as they can.
Maybe this is why they were given the “privilege” of bearing the burden of the strongest typhoon ever recorded.” 
Even the UFC fighter Alex "The Mauler" Gustaffson sent out his message to the victims.

He said:

"Just stay strong, keep your head up and I really hope it is not that bad, but stay strong"

Miss PH Universe 2013 Ariella Arida and 1st Runner Up Ms. Universe Janine Tugonon have also message to the Filipino. Watch this video:

And Korean artist Lee Min Hoo has a special message:

"I heard that there was great damage done by typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. I hope everyone is safe now. Please don't lose faith. We're thinking of you from Korea."

It's so nice to know that we Filipino are not alone in facing this tragedy. It is not always about money and material things. Even words of encouragement can unload the burdens.
