12 Heart Breaking Images of Typhoon Haiyan’s Leftovers

We are human beings. We have mood swings. We change our temperament with time. We yell. We cry. We shout. We fight. If we aren’t someone who can have a stable state of mind and why should we expect it from the Nature; especially when we ourselves don’t bother about keeping this earth Green. I believe, Nature was at its “bad hair day”  which ultimately has eventuated into something like “Typhoon Haiyan“. A vent out, which probably has left people crying for their beloved ones, scavenging for food, watch unending number of dead-bodies post typhoon and crib over what wrong have done to witness something like this.

I can feel the agony of these people and yet i know that their pain and loss is irreversible. A life gone can never come back. It’s a nature’s drama. It’s heart breaking for me to say..but i am comfortably numb as i have my family around. At times I wake in the middle of night thinking what if it was me in that disaster.

Like any other natural calamity, this has left me stunned, jaw dropped and helpless.

I went through few websites to see what has Typhoon Haiyan left for us to see.

Stating a simple line that houses were destroyed wouldn’t be enough. With each house, many unfulfilled dreams, desires, lives and relations have destroyed too.

Thousands of homes were destroyed in Tacloban.

I hope and pray that The Almighty would not take such harsh action next time on us.
