Theme: What needs to be done to develop sense of citizenship in young people and help them realize their role in nation-building. “Bringing back the true purpose of the youth in filling up the missing pieces of our country’s key to success” In every dot begins a stroke. In every stroke begins a figure. In every figure begins an image. And in every image creates a masterpiece. Like a painting, our world is full of dots and strokes, and through those dots represents us people that though we may look like insignificant points, we, if taken as one body, can define the world.
This shows that no matter who we are or what we are, what race or nation we came from, and how young we are and what role we stand in the society, each one of us is an important piece of puzzle. And us youth, like dots, are precious and has a purpose in filling up the world. As future heroes of the world, the youth has something to say as young citizens of our country. We maybe like young birds that can’t fly yet on all the worldly events but we definitely can build changes as we climb the ladder of our generation. But sad to tot that as the world revolves a thousand times, a million times our purpose as significant dots is questioned.
Instead of saving the day we are the ones to be rescued. Many of us can be the next world leaders but it is also evident that many of us can be the next most wanted criminals. It is either we are like slippers in which someone holds our own fate if where we will go even though it is not where we wanted, or worms who can go wherever we wanted but are blind to know if it is the right path. There were even some who are apathetic enough on the place where they vive and the role that they can achieve that they are more concerned on worldly pleasures-money, gambling, virtual world, drugs, alcohol, and sex.
If we really want to engrave within us the scripture of how we can be the best dots, then, what should be done? It does not mean that if we have fallen somewhere we cannot start all over again. As time ticks we become smarter and we know that someday our nation will need us and it is our time to do what needs to be done for our country. To realize that, we need a tablespoon of discipline, a cup of responsibility and a handful of service to he nation, in order to make the best ingredient as the hope of our fatherland.
Yes, this maybe a mountain peak to reach but always remember again that every beautiful thing begins in a single dot and we know it is within us. If pencils can correct mistakes along the way, we too have erasers that can banish all the short comings we have made. If we can make a candle light in a room, we too can make our lives light up the world for a lifetime. We may not be like pencils and candles to perfect the Jest of life but we have hands that can reach out to help, a mind that can each genuine knowledge to our fellowmen, and a heart that can spread the unconditional love for our nation.
We maybe young and can experience possibilities to be hit by cars or trip on manholes and give up as we run to the finish line of our purpose, but, dots are not Just dots and we are not Just youth with a pinch role in the society. We may be bombarded by lots of stones that can make us weak but we know we can be a spark that can do something big. We, can, do something big. We, can. And all we need to do is prove it. Can we?
