Anyone can easily shrug off any form of tragedy as just a part of life. But only the most soulless, vile, and twisted beings online can leave a “Haha” reaction on a news report about what is considered to be one of the worst sea disasters Western Visayas has ever witnessed. Whether they’re coming across as clever or “edgy” doesn’t make these numbskulls any less human. Disrespect is pretty much rampant online where they could easily become an “edgelord” overnight, posting memes in a bid to compensate for their lack of a decent upbringing. But we’re not going to focus much on these nihilistic yahoos. Humanitarian effort has been exerted by individuals and organizations to save and care for the survivors of the three pump-boats that capsized on Saturday when strong winds and rain pummelled the Iloilo Strait. On that fateful day, M/B Chichi, M/B Keziah-2, and M/B Jenny Vince capsized after squalls tipped these vessels over and left their crew and passengers in the middle of the water.
