He begins his introduction by relating his experience of typhoon Ondoy in , which caused the loss of much life and property.

Devine spoke at an event I attended this past weekend, or those who want to be better prepared to support those who are grieving. This quote sure hits home for me. We carry each other as she writes Someone that doesn't tell you to get over it or that everything happens for a reason and you cry in relief.
