To serve is to take a long journey not with aimless wandering, but with a purpose. The youth of today has come to their senses; they now know the reason of their existence. It is but fitting to give them a chance by living up to the name that SK stands for. Don’t let the sins of the past dirty the chances of a better tomorrow. Don’t just immediately shoot the youth down, but give them another shot.
Sangguniang Kabataan is a group of representative of the youth in the government and politics. They implement projects for everyone but most of their projects are for the youth. At the past there is no youth council or SK that represents youth however it is established and it exist until now. The youth is said to be the hope of the nation but most people stopped believing in it since most of the youth now are lazy and some are addicted in different ways. Even though most of the youth has negative characteristics there are still some youth that know what to do and they are increasing and they are maturing. The youth of the present knows what to do and they are being more productive than before.
Later this year an issue about removing the Sangguniang Kabataan or the Youth Council from the government and it is not yet decided if the representatives of the youth will be removed or not. The Sangguniang Kabataan is one of the groups that could help the youth to contribute to their nation as a citizen with a voice of the whole youth. The group Sangguniang Kabataan helps the youth to show they can still be considered the hope of the nation. If the Sangguniang Kabataan will be removed from the government there would be no representatives of the youth in the government. When the removal of the Sangguniang Kabataan pursue it could also mean that the youth are not the hope of the nation.
Sangguniang Kabataan or the Youth Council may be connected to some issues of corruption from the past. Those issues shouldn’t be the reason why the Sangguniang Kabataan will be dismantled from the government. They shouldn’t
generalize their opinion about Sangguniang Kabataan. There could be some issues but not all Sangguniang Kabataan are corrupted may be in some cities they are considered corrupt but from the other cities they are honest on their service for the youth. The government should consider those who are honest in serving their fellow youth because the youth could still be considered the hope of the nation. They should give the youth a chance to prove the nation that they are still the hope of the nation.
The Sangguniang Kabataan is one of the important voice or representative in the government. It would be hard for the youth to accept their representative’s removal from the government. They could be considered a body without a head if the Sangguniang Kabataan will be removed from the government. The youth will have no voice to shout out their needs and to give their suggestions to help their nation rise. We all should give the Sangguniang Kabataan or the youth council a chance to prove that the youth are still the hope of our nation to improve our economy also let them help and contribute in solving problems of our nation for the betterment of the future. Let the Sangguniang Kabataan defend their name and prove theirselves.
