Motivational message hanging at Hilton Truck Sales, beside GTC in Hinaplanon area, one of the most hardest hit areas during the Sendong tragedy.
Personally, I was emotionally affected by the tragedy, probably nothing compared to those who were directly affected, especially those whose properties were lost or destroyed, and those whose love ones died and are still missing.
The Cebuano version of the positive message. “Iligan, we can do this!” in English.
Tagalog equivalent for the non Bisaya speakers.
Similar motivational message posted at Steel Town in Sta. Elena, in English it is “We can do this! Onwards Iliganon!” At least that’s my translation.
