As images of the devastation wrought by Typhoon Yolanda fill our television and computer screens, we all display different reactions.
Some bowed their heads in prayer, others called for help, and a whole lot more volunteered their services, offered assistance, participated in rescue and relief operations. Through all these, people have been asking why these things happen. Others simply go up and try to do what can be done.
Amazingly, children also rose up to the challenge of doing what they can do. One photo tweet from @ShekinahEden is so heartwarming—children selling lemonade ice tea to help typhoon families.

Hurray to the human spirit of helping fellow human beings where we can and however we can. And we start them young!
