Every time a natural calamity occurs, the inherent goodness of people always shows up because this is the time that we need it the most. Some heroic efforts may be left unnoticed but others just can’t help but be in the spotlight because of the goodness of their hearts.
Aaron Sangcap, a Sangguniang Kabataan chairman from Concepcion, Tarlac recently gained attention online because of his heroic efforts in the midst of Typhoon Ulysses.
In the photos that made rounds online, Sangcap is seen shirtless and only wearing orange shorts while paddling in the midst of the flood that happened in their area. Even though he and his team was having difficulty, he still had this genuine smile on his face which made him look charismatic.
Another photo shows him walking in the midst of the deep flood while carrying a black plastic bag in one hand and a basin containing cup noodles in the other.
In his Facebook account, Sangcap shared that he is just a naturally jolly person and it shows in his photos because for him, being optimistic even in the midst of a calamity is one key factor to staying strong and survive whatever challenge that may come our way.
He also shared that in the midst of this difficult situation that we are facing, it is important to work hand in hand or uplift the Bayanihan spirit and trust in the Lord because everything is possible with him.
Also, a few scrolls on Sangcap’s Facebook account will lead you to his countless charity works which is proof that he is indeed a very warm person and is always willing to help those who are in need without waiting for anything in return.
To those who may be wondering, this is the passage that is tattooed on his shoulder: (1 Corinthians 16:13) “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.”
