Ang kabataan ang pag-asa ng bayan

My cousins and I went to a park last week when two children came to me and one of them said. " Mag rap ko kuya beh " I don't know what he meant however,  I just said go. In the process, I learned that It is a culture in the area that they would perform a song in exchange of a small amount of money. Yet, honestly I enjoyed watching them. I even had cheered for them. After they performed curious as I am we had a little conversation about their situation and some interrogative talks but they seem very offensive to be posted. Young as they are words from their mouth are not that good but something in my heart tells me to be merciful and gracious; and bring them home and adopt them since I've always wanted to have a younger brother I never had. (LOL :] ) Anyway, I wanted to give an insight to these behaviors. As a person, I am crushed with this personality behavior. Clearly, from their physical look and actions, they are poor. Social status, here, plays an important factor in developing the young.

Dr. Jose P. Rizal stated, “Ang kabataan ang pag-asa ng bayan” . Of course, this is so used qoutation. But still, true to its meaning. These young people are poor from inside. They are corrupted. Mostly would say, corrupted mind. But, I believe that they're minds are not corrupted, its their personality. From our sociology class, if I’m not mistaken, it is the society that dictates what the young would be. If the child grew in a good environment, then the child would be well-educated and well-groomed, and vice-versa. If the society dictates, then the products (kids) follows the society. It will be also true, that the products of the society will continue what they have learned from their own society, and transfer to the next generation. The process would then repeat, and then repeat, until it is broken by a social change. The social change here, refers to the corruption itself. Indeed, corruption of the young is corruption in its fullest form.

Here's the video:
