Resiliency and the unsinkable Filipino spirit

This is what we’ve seen, heard and experience with the people we encountered during our “walking retreat” last June 27-29, 2017 in Tacloban City.  After almost four years since typhoon Yolanda hit the place, Tacloban and the province of Leyte recovered very quickly.  In any given place, the time to recover from a major calamity is usually five years; in Tacloban, it took only two years for almost everything to go back to normal.  Yolanda was an experience that moved the people of Tacloban to show the world that hope is more powerful than a super typhoon.
