Lucy Torres gets emotional remembering typhoon Yolanda


Lucy Torres draws hope and strength from Leyte’ harrowing experience from the wrath of typhoon Yolanda, especially now that the Philippines is in crisis once again.

The model and Ormoc Congresswoman looked back to 2013 and realized how far the city has gone from the devastation. While it is a moment of pride, it still carries morsels of pain.

“Today, I make a pause to look back at all that was. And even as I remember the darkness so, too, am I reminded of all the light. Kindness was that light, I saw and experienced enough of it to know it is the default of the human heart,” the politiko said.

“May this be your gentle reminder that the wind always shifts, the storm passes, and times do get better — for as long as you give yourself space to feel, allow time to heal. Trust the process,” she added.
