If disasters were to take place, adults would fret while youngsters behave otherwise

The Philippines is prone to a myriad of natural calamities as it is situated within the "Pacific Ring of Fire" and the usual pathway of typhoons coming from the east.

While natural disasters are typical occurrences in this island nation, middle aged people and older detest any incoming typhoons or whatever unpleasant thought about adversities of any sort an act of God has caused.

If older people dread any idea of difficulties brought about by natural disasters, youngsters, on the other hand, especially the students, take pleasure in the impending danger.

In an interview with, Joseph, 15, a student in a renowned university in the country, said that typhoon means suspension of classes and a break from seeing his terror teachers.

One classroom somewhere in Northern Luzon that I happened to visit while typhoon Lando was making its way into the place was submerged not in water but in yells when the teacher announced that classes would be suspended.

We had once been a student like Joseph before and we, in one way or another, shared the same feeling with him when classes were to be put on hold due to typhoons or floods.

This way of thinking is something that most adults don't want to hear. And though it may sound wicked, wishing for disasters so that classes would be suspended is a typical behavior of students, but we know things will not stay the same as we come of age especially when we have great responsibilities to assume.
