Out of sight, out of mind?

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to take a moment to remind you that the situation in the Philippines is far from resolved. What I've come to realize is that while we all react to a crisis such as this with compassion and caring, once the situation is no longer "newsworthy" we have a tendency to think that all is well and the crisis has been resolved. But let me assure you that in the case of the recent typhoon in the Philippines (as is the case with most major disasters) it is anything but resolved and in fact although aid is finally getting through to some places, there are a lot of regions that are still without water, food, shelter and medical assistance. So what I'm asking really is that we remind each other that people are still suffering there and we need to make sure everyone's level of awareness remains high. This problem isn't going away anytime soon and we need to not only help in any way we can but to keep all the survivors of this terrible tragedy in our prayers.

Thank you for listening.
