It’s so sad with the tremendous happenings to our dearest fellow Filipino’s on what happened to the MV Princess of the Stars with the typhoon Frank. I myself experienced on how to travel via ferry going back to my province, and experiencing typhoon, heavy waves during travel is not easy. We don’t really know why this tragedy happened again and knowing that the Captain of the said Ferry has a very good record, completed his trainings for maritime. We are not in controlled of everything in this world. I just pray to those victims and their families that they may have comfort despite of loosing their love ones and families. Indeed as the saying says Life is too Short.
