2013 in Moods
In the last few days of 2013, it's a time to look back, remember, feel and understand ... not just intellectually but emotionally.
Join Maria Ressa and the Rappler team as they take us through a year of creative destruction - a term coined by economist Joseph Schumpeter to refer to the idea that in order to create "from within," we are "incessantly destroying the old one, incessantly creating a new one."
It is certainly a year of destruction - from earthquakes and super typhoons to the pork barrel. But it's also a year of creation: from an empowered people using social media to say no to corruption to government institutions redefining the principles ahead. Technology is changing our lives - creating a more participative democracy.
From the rubble of destruction, Filipinos must build, and while the transition may mean it will get worse before it gets better, 2014 promises to be exciting because in many ways, it's out with the old and in with the new.
Let's look back at the events of 2013 and the way they made us feel.
