That's how many people have been describing Luzon's response to this week's deluge.
A few folks have raised their eyebrows, though. We shouldn't be okay with getting wet just because we're waterproof, they say. I couldn't agree more.
But I don't think that's what we mean when we say our spirit is waterproof. It's not a motto of resignation, but of resilience. We will never be okay with getting flooded, but when it does happen, you can bet we will get through it. That's what it means to be waterproof.
