Most of today I spent in registration which would best be described as the "front line".
This, the front line in registration, was where I met Lorna.
This frail lady was wandering around the grounds of the Tacloban City Hospital with three young children just watching and clinging to her. Late in the day after registration was closed, I went over to talk to her. She hadn't lined up during the clinic, she just watched from a safe distance.
This is where Lorna's story begins.
It was November 8th, 2013.
13 year old Matthew bolted to the second floor carrying his 6 year old sister ... and ended up saving her life. Lorna grabbed onto 5 year old Noel and struggled against the pull of the black water up the stairs to safety. Lorna prayed that her husband and her other 2 children were safe.
Tragically these victims were just two of the estimated 20,000 people to lose their lives that day.
