- Many other netizens praised the kind deed and the good heart that the netizen showed toward the old lady
A netizen, Jason Lauzon, posted a photo of a really old and small lady selling rugs on the street amid a pandemic.
The lola was selling bundles of small rugs on the street, braving cars, heat and even smoke that could pose harm to her health.
The kind netizen did not just take her picture to elicit sympathy and help from other netizens but bought all of lola's rugs so that the elderly could just go home.
His post stated:
"GoodMorning nay ,
Bilhin ko na lahat Yan.
Uwi kana para makapag pahinga ka maaga
Di maganda nasa labas ka lalo’t may edad kana God bless u!"
Filipino resilience is evident in times of crisis. Many have shown that they can make it through a pandemic. Filipinos abroad have also shown this kind of resiliency.
One example of Filipino resilience is how people looked for ways and means to live after they lost their jobs because of unexpected circumstances. For instance, a stewardess turned to online selling when she lost her job.
Artists, like Gladys Guevarra, also put her skills in making Filipino delicacies to good use.
The COVID-19 outbreak started out in Wuhan, Hubei Province of China. Scientists believed that the virus came from an animal at one of Wuhan's wet markets. The Philippines has slowly eased quarantine measures and Filipinos are starting to adapt to the new normal.
