By: Emmanuel C. Roldan

 Published as cover story of SunStar Davao on December 29, 2013    DAVAO CITY—It was raining all night in December 15, yet the spirit of going to Talaingod for the traditional “Christmas cheers” of children in the early morning of the next day was all time high.  The stark aide-mémoire of typhoon Pablo (Bopha) a year ago that devastated the provinces of Davao Oriental, Compostela Valley and some parts of Davao del Norte did not dampen the resolve organizers either.   The group of the Worldwide Filipino Alliance-Pangdaigdigang Alyansa ng Pilipino Inc.
