"I am only one, but I am one.
I cannot do everything, but I can do something.
And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do."  -- Edward Everett Hale

The devastation of typhoon Yolanda (international code name Haiyan)  is beyond words.  One day everyone was optimistically reporting zero casualties and the next day hundreds are dead and thousands are reportedly missing. The most powerful storm to hit the earth in recent history, with maximum sustained winds of 235 km/h,  swept across Visayas wiping out entire towns.   It has brought death, sickness and lawlessness in some villages.  Catastrophes like this may bring out the survival instinct of men but it also brings out the kindred spirit of mankind.   The enormity of the damage may look utterly hopeless,  how does one even begin to help?
