Calamity Juan

Remember when I mentioned I was making a documentary last year and that was why I wasn't able to make that many amigurumis? Well, here's the fruit of my sleep-deprived, stress-inducing, and pitiful tear-jerking efforts... A documentary of the top 3 disasters that happened in the Philippines (My country) plus the potential uber, mega disaster that could wipe-out the whole populace of Manila and its surrounding provinces. Not exactly a cheery topic, is it?
Well, it might be a grim subject but it's very timely with all the unexpected and extreme flood, earthquakes, and typhoons going on around recently. We could blame climate change for all these disasters, which we should but then again who's fault is climate change? I'm not gonna be the stick-in-the-mud here and say it's all hopeless and we're all gonna die in a burning, water world 'coz we're tiny, brilliant destroyers of the earth. Wow! O_O Okay, that sounds a little too over the top. What I meant is climate change is basically our fault with all the pollution, non-biodegradable crap, and radioactive whatnots, but that doesn't mean it's too late or there's nothing we could do to reverse its dire effects. It may take time but it's not impossible to set things right again with mother earth and create a better world for our future generation. Okay, now that almost sounded like a UNICEF commercial.

Anyway, climate change isn't really the main subject of my documentary, I just thought to mention it since it's partly connected to natural disasters. I had the opportunity to talk about taking care of the earth so I took it.  But this is actually about preparation and acquiring the right knowledge to survive earthquakes, floods, or typhoons. It may seem like a broken record when we're constantly reminded to prepare for the worst, but if you really think about it, preparation can save hundreds of lives and prevent further disasters. Knowing what to do when the unexpected happens or what to do after it happens is vital in keeping damages to a minimum. This doesn't need expertise or a PHD, it just requires enough dedication and willingness to live and save the life of others.

So I hope this documentary doesn't just entertain you or help with your history class, but make you realize that calamities are not suppose to make you helpless. It's a destructive phenomenon that could take lives and destroy everything you love, but it's something that you could do something about. Preparation is key.
Thank you! Thank you! Hahaha! ^o^

It's not exactly NatGeo or Discovery channel material, but I hope you like it. ^^
