THEME: “Change, I want To See Begins With Me: Becoming the New Filipino”“Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but Ican look up and see the beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they lead.”My courtesy to the Honorable Board of Judges, friends, ladies and gentlemen, goodday to everyone!!!Change they say is the only constant thing on earth. Much has been heard aroundthe world about a battle cry raised against the administration of a workplace, against theeducational system or against the government. . And there has been only one similarplea ... to have CHANGE in the system. People long for change because they want to startanew. Particularly, for the labor sector for example , to raise their standard of living. .forthe youth sector, to enjoy a more quality education, to have freedom on everything theyneed, and for the women in the community, to attain gender equality, for the masses, toeradicate poverty, and for an ordinary citizen, to have a peaceful living.But what is change really? Is it something personal? Yes.! It must start fromwithin. If we long to change the world into a better one, make it a point, aim high andfollow your dreams. Sound idealistic? No. It’s simple. Great things come from humbleand small beginnings.. Remember that old, old cliché? Absolutely, we must always startfrom the fist step in the ladder. Some coin it as a joke “ there is no short cut to heaven.” So
what is important is that, you must only believe in yourselves as I mentioned earlier, try tofollow where your aspirations may lead you. If you can’t reach them, just look at thebeauty of such aspirations. If you find it hard to reach your dreams , change the way youlook at them. In short, think positive!!As a youth, I want to see myself way ahead as a successful career individual withmuch higher hope to change not only my life but others as well. After all we are destined tolive for others too. God created us for others’ existence. Biblically, once God felt lonelyand alone and decided to create Adam. And when he saw Adam lonely, He created Eve outof his concern and sensitivity to Adam’s need to have a companion in life. See? God himself has wanted us to live happily with others. That significant event alone has taught us tocare for others and that makes life worth and meaningful. As a social being, it has been afact that “no man is an island.” I myself has been longing for a change for a better life,and I believe it must start from me and I must be like a stone thrown into a still water tocreate a rippling effect to others.Change therefore is not a word per se that will just multiply and happen in aninstant without any driving force from within ourselves. It depends on our motives to seehow Philippines will become more progressive socially, morally, economically andspiritually. No matter how we cry out loud to eradicate poverty, social unrest andpolitical turmoil , if we have the wrong motives, change is impossible. Yes, it’s hard tochange if we are resistant to it. But if we are determined to foster it, we must also alter ourprinciples, our ideals, ourselves. We can make and unmake men by trying to be an exampleto them and that will eventually create a peaceful and better Philippines if not a betterworld.
