Tension in the Middle East

I guess you already know about the unrest in Libya in the past few days. It has affected thousands of people, not just their locals but many foreigners as well. There;s so many OFW or overseas Filipino Workers that are coming by batches from Libya to escape the turmoil there. Upon hearing the various stories of our workers, I can;t help but to feel sad for them and their family as they not only lost some of their belongings while they are escaping in the borders but their jobs that are giving them salary that can feed their families. I'm not so sure (nobody really knows) when the tension will subside but I hope it's soon.

There's also a news that in Saudi there'll be a huge demonstration and protest come March 11, 2011 and it's very alarming. I have a sister and a brother-in-law who are working there and it seems that if worst will happen, they are going to evacuate and go home in the country as well.

It's just so sad as there are many workers that will be jobless when they go home here. I just hope and pray that it will not surface. We need to pray that everything will be alright and not many will be affected. It's just too sad.
