Janella Lelis--brave patriotic girl

The photo below by Francisco Pena Lozano caught my eye when it appeared a few days ago at the (website of the Philippine Daily Inquirer newspaper). The Philippines has been ravaged by rather strong typhoons in the past days, bringing floods especially in the northern Philippines area.

Janella Lelis, the 12-year-old girl in the photo, is from Albay province, one of the hardest hit provinces of the typhoons in recent days. But strong rains and deep floods didn't stop Janella from saving from ruin a Philippine flag. I salute Janella for her patriotism, and her family and teachers who've brought her up well.
