Individuals watch on their laptops, TV screens and mobile phones the pivotal scene of the Filipino classic film, Himala. Albeit their acts are done individually, the majority in the confines of their abodes, the undertakings seem more like a collective endeavour on struggling to comprehend what has gone wrong, or simply, why is the tragedy happening. And the level of awareness of this community is as much an issue, because they are all witnesses, but they will see the incident in very disparate ways. Their cultural backgrounds will define their take on it.
