A 6.8 magnitude earthquake hit Negros Oriental, Philippines in February 6, 2012. It brought damage to houses, properties and infrastructures in the area. News reported 13 people died, as many as 40 people missing and destroyed more than 30 houses.. Look at the pictures below and imagine how the earthquake destroyed some properties and how it provoked fear to the people in Negros Oriental.

These pictures are credited to Hulagway ug Kasikas sa Dumaguete.

kung alin ang tunay na relihiyon na tanging ililigtas ng Panginoon......
hindi relihiyon ang makakaligtas kundi alin yung daan upang tayo ay maligtas

Kini usa lang ka pagsulay og gipakita lang sa Ginoo unsa cya ka gamhanan. Og kahibawo pud ang Ginoo nga kusog kaayo ang paglihok sa iya mga anak sa Negros para maluwas ang tanan nga mga katawhan. What is important is we have to be prepared for the death that anytime will come anyone of us. Death, is everyone's fate anyway. The most blessed are those who are 100% sure that their soul is going to Heaven and that is only possible through the Lord Jesus Christ.

Sometimes we fail to understand that fortuitous events like this is not simply all man-made but an element of the earth's complex system i.e. its assembly parts working naturally and at the same time it could be a part of natural elimination of the world's overpopulation. It is just unfortunate for the distressed victims. May their remaining families be able to cope up with their losses in the soonest possible time.

Mermaid, if I'm not mistaken, you're thinking that earth has its own immune system like the human body. It it experiences disorder, it heals itself. I feel pity for those victims of terrible chances.

Even though the Prayer are very helpful, we must not depend on that, I think we must also prepare ourselves what will happen esp. in this kind of disaster, but Mary will help us, this is just a test. what we are!
