Storms come and go. They destroy almost everything weak and helpless along their way. They are like obstacles hindering the growth of plants and animals. With all these deaths in the world, one should be sad. Yet, life is full of storms coming and leaving. As the law of survival says, survival of the fittest. Those who are weak die but those who survive grow stronger, more beautiful and more adaptable to the remaining trials that they will encounter.
Santan plants have been used to beautify gates, fences and gardens. They are cut, flooded and even exposed to heavy typhoons. In spite of that, they grow back and continue to strive. The outcome of which are the beautiful buds that grow in clusters. With the trials to come, remember the santan plant.
