Our country today suffer from so many crises that arises in the society. Problems can be found anywhere----corruption, extrajudicial killings, injustices, murders, addictions, prostitutions, terrorism, environmental abuses and many more. Indeed, PROBLEMS arise on different phases with the indication of Great danger. Despite of this, we are optimistic and determined to the country from this great devastation. Though others lost their concern and respect for the country, striving and working only for themselves, without thinking of others.
What we need is a well disciplined citizen that would show concern for everyone. He who work for the benefit of all. One who possesses courage to take risk and enthusiastically takes part in solving today's crisis in our society.
I am lucky enough tahat i was given a great privilege to be honored as one of the National Discipline Awardees.
I have accepted the challenges given to me by this great opportunity, it challenges me to embibed the value of discipline, being a model to my fellow young in particular and for everybody in general to be more tough and courageous facing challenges of tomorrow, to be part of the challenge that our country wanted to face; to untie the bondage of slavery and greed that cause this great devastation.
Everyone says that i'm too young to do something to solve this situation, but i can do it, i am so much equipped with abilities and skills acquired from my education. I have the right to speak out my ideas and feelings and emotions that will enable my spirit to go further in fulfilling my goals to save my country from devastation.
In my simple way like encouraging Filipino Youth to be more cooperative, motivating fellow students to practice camaraderie among each other with understanding and respect, doing something about our environment starting it in my community, i could help lessen pollutions and diseases that cause more death rates. In the near future, I could make all my works grow branches and leaves that would be a great help in the society someday.
In my simplicity i am with the struggling Filipino Youth so that the government may hear our crie, the silent screams inside our hearts ignited the fervor of fighting for freedom of the youth from the bondage of neo-colonial education that produces consumeristic citizen of tomorrow; the camaraderie of the youthful dreams will alow us to move forward together. The discipline in ourselves will further take us to the realization of our goals to obey the rules of justice, to follow the trend of Christian Brotherhood, to step on the trail of truth and accept the boarders of knowledge learned, taught and experienced as we are authentic young with courage, respect, and discipline.
In anticipation I believe that Philippines would be a better place to live in!!!
