Journaling reads: With the devastation from typhoon Haiyan, the countless stories of suffering and loss has certainly been so heartbreaking to say the least. And then in the midst of all this sadness are stories of kindness and generosity that confirms my faith in the goodness of humanity. I’ve already scrapped this photo but this one action touched me deeply especially since it’s in New York and it deserves another page. It’s the lighting of the Empire State building in the colors of the Philippine flag. I’m still blown away by all the support. Thank you!
