Misericordia

Aklatan ito ng mga pakikipagsapalaran, at ikaw bilang panauhin, ay malayang maglakbay nang may buntot, bagwis, at sungay. Ipagpalagay na isa itong eskinita, at sa tula ni Teo Antonio ay maghuhunos kang estudyante na kung hindi nagmamarakulyo sa mundo ay umiibig sa kalapati na dumarapo sa sahig ng hatinggabi. Lumakad ka, at madaraanan ang huntahan ng mga eskolar ng bayan; makiusyoso, at ang matutunghayan ay dalawang tambay na nagsusunog ng kilay sa ahedres. Maaaring malikmata lamang ito, wiwikain mo. Habang lumalaon, mabubulag ka ng mga ilaw ng sasakyan. Sisingit sa iyong gunita ang diyabolikong lungsod ni Mike Bigornia para tugunin mo ng isang malanding sipol kung hindi man malulutong na pakyu. Matutulig ka sa musika at bulyawan ng mag-anak na nagdiriwang sa kanilang gutom at hinanakit. Aakitin ka ng mga bilbord para managinip na isa kang modelo ng alahas o pabango. Ipasasakay mo sa simoy ang katwiran ng kalinisan. Humipo ka sa kanan ay malalaglag ang mga pahina o larawan. Humilig ka sa kaliwa ay matitigmak sa sipon o luha ang balikat. Maaakit ka sa yakap ng karimlan. Magugutom ka sa mga umagang kumakalam ang ulirat. Tatangkain mong umimbulog, subalit ang kakatwa’y para kang saranggola na nasalalak sa antena at kawad. Hihingi ka ng tulong. At maya-maya’y magdaratingan ang mga lasing na maton. Saka mo maririnig ang isa sa kanilang lumpeng intelektuwal na tangan ang tirador at bubulong-bulong. Mapapapikit ka, at nanaising matunaw na allid sa sinag ng liwayway.

Panawagan at Paghingi ng Tulong ng mga taga-Isla Talim

Humihingi ng tulong ang mga residente ng Isla Talim (Talim Island) na pinaghahatian ng Binangonan at  Cardona na pawang sakop ng Lalawigan ng Rizal, dahil hindi makabiyahe ang mga de-motor na bangkang makapaghahatid ng suplay ng pagkain, gamot, at iba pang kagamitan sa isla sanhi ng masigwang alon at hangin. Ang mga bahayang malapit sa baybayin ay malubhang naapektuhan ng baha noong sumagasa ang Bagyong Ondoy.

Nakatanggap din ng balita ang Alimbukad na naapektuhan ng baha ang mga baybayin ng Binangonan at Angono, na ang ilang barangay ay lubog pa rin sa baha. Hindi gaanong napapansin ang magkanugnog na bayang ito, ngunit marami ang apektadong tao na dapat saklolohan sa madaling panahon.

Mangyari po lamang na tumulong ang mga kinauukulan sa pamamagitan ng pagpapadala ng mga pagkain, tubig, damit, at iba pang kaugnay na bagay na pawang kailangang-kailangan ng mga tao. Hinihimok din ng Alimbukad na makipag-ugnayan sa mga pamahalaang lokal, at iba pang pribadong ahensiya, na pawang nakatuon sa paghahatid ng serbisyo.

Pahabol: Lubog pa rin sa baha ang ilang pook sa Pasig, Pateros, at Taguig at ang mga tao ay nangangailangan ng maagap na tulong, gaya ng pagkain, gamot, at damit. Masigasig ang mga pamahalaang lokal sa pagtulong, ngunit hindi nito makakaya nang mag-isa lamang ang malawakang pinsala. Kung sakali’t nais tumulong, makipag-ugnayan lamang sa mga pamahalaang lokal at pribadong ahensiyang pawang nangangasiwa sa paghahatid ng tulong.
