Typhoon "Sendong" and the Untimely Death of DPRK Leader and Dictator Kim Jong II

Currently listening to Christian music -- "You Hold Me Now" by Hillsong.

17-December, 8 days before Christmas.  while our whole Nation is grieving from deep sorrow brought by the enormous catastrophe of typhoon "sendong," which to date unleashed a death toll of over a thousand casualties, the whole world may also extend sympathy not only the Filipino victims of disasters but also to the world's most secretive state -- North Korean People who are also mourning for the distressing death of their leader, Kim Jong II.  However, North Korean Government only announced it on 19-December. The delay in the announcement  of Kim's death has been raising speculations on the strategic intention of the Democratic People's Republic of korea (DPRK).  Undoubtedly the ability of DPRK to keep secret on Kim's actual death pose serious doubt on the intelligence skills of foreign governments and spies that have been putting North Korea under extreme security watch.

The Philippines, our Nation has been through a lot over the years, and that progress and development have always been dampened by enormous political upheavals, if not by corruption, and ever uncontrollable disaster.  There's still hope, even if sometimes I may think that this country is hopeless seeing undeniable contrasts in the metropolis -- slums and villages of the affluent.  I do love and take pride of my country, I may be eventually will run out of reasons why but at least, at this kind of thoughts -- this is exactly what this country needs. Our country needs great deal of Nationalism to support its ever dampening recovery.

Hope is necessary.  If we lose that, then as a human -- we're wasting our life and purpose.  So to the victims of the recent typhoon "sendong", please hold on to your hopes and faith -- these two shall keep us able to survive.

My deepest sympathy to those that have been affected by typhoon "sendong", may God be with you.

May the spirit of Christmas be with us all.
