She sent these messages to media.
Time and again, our resolve and strength as a people are being tested. We have been through another calamity. And I deeply commiserate with the Filipino people esp those who have lost their loved ones. Let this be another occasion to show our courage to face all of life’s trials. We should unite as a people to help one another. And most importantly, we should not lose our faith in our Almighty that it is through Him that nothing is impossible. God bless us all!
the devastation caused by the rains sends a strong warning to humanity that we are very vulnerable to nature’s wrath and its destructive elements. it hurts me more to see my cabalens in this predicament, much much more than the pains that i’m experiencing right now. i enjoin our beloved capampangans to show strength and unity in confronting these challenges before us. there is nothing more potent than faith in God and faith in our attributes to withstand misfortunes such as this. let us be strong. let us fight. wounds will always heal, anxieties will always cease, and sadness will eventually be replaced with glee. let us not cry but instead come up with solutions and actions to stand up once again. let us hold our hands together, thank The Almighty for sparing our lives and let’s get TO WORK! Caluguran da cayu ngan!
