I have learned so much but I am still sorting it out. The fact that every time I see Filipinos from Leyte the typhoon “experience” becomes the conversation within minutes is evidence that there is still much to be digested and sorted.
This is what Troy feels he has learned from experiencing the worst storm in history:Most People are GoodThere were so many examples of people acting generously. That generosity is still evident today as hundreds of international NGOs still reside in Tacloban. People are genuinely compassionate towards their fellow man. These stories are well documented including many people who could have easily left butstayed like Elsa Thomasma, Sophie Maucort, and Medical Missions who changed their itinerary from Chiapas to Leyte at the airport, and countless others.
