The declaration of Lehman Brother’s bankruptcy has truly shocked the world. While it is a clear evidence of our weakening economy, the effect of the recent hurricane Ike just gave additional burden to all of us – the casualties and damage to thousands of homes left by this catastrophe.
No doubt, we can always stand up in every fall. On the other hand, I’m thinking how the world is looking at us today.

With these series of devastating news, I can’t help but ask, where do we go from here?

Hurricanes’ effects are actually the results of our abusive acts to the nature. Thus, we should do our part to avoid these things from happening again by taking care of our environment.
I would like to believe that these events have truly awakened us. We are all part of this world and our reasons and means for living highly depends on our own acts and decision. Let’s stop blaming one another but start to stand up hand and hand. The world might be watching us now in this situation, my faith is still strong that we can get this through – together with the help of our Heavenly Father.
Where do we go from here? Start kneeling down and pray – from that point we’ll surely have better and brighter days to come. . Let’s not forget that someone powerful is watching over…
