As many of you should know, a devastating typhoon hit the Philippines last Friday morning. This typhoon has been absolutely wrecked by this typhoon, one of the strongest storms in recorded history and yet no one is talking about it. The only people on social media that I see talking about what happened are my relatives in the Philippines expressing just how badly the nation has been hit. I know as college students we live in the “college bubble” but that still doesn’t excuse the fact that all I’ve been hearing/seeing is talk of Stan the LX bus driver. I’m sorry but one man’s loss of his job should not be as important to the student body as the loss of thousands of lives and the displacement of millions of people. It’s harsh, but we need to get a grip.
