Rizal's Belief in Youth



essay : Rizal said that "A toast for the youth of the Philippines, sacred hope of my country, that they may follow such excellent examples." A proof that Rizal believes to the youth's abilities that someday they may be the good leaders of our country as what he did. He fought for the democracy of the Filipinos in fact a generation of youth bred on the polemics of the Propaganda Movement and specifically motivated by the ideas of José Rizal rose up to defeat the Spanish Army. I can justify Rizal's belilef in me through following or making his heroine act as inspiration. Rizal's heroic acts such as giving a positive identity and a universal mission to all Filipinos by his words and by his deeds, begin making sacrifices and commitments very early in his life, not simply out of love for the country, but for the sake of humanity and posterity.

" 'Where are the youth who will consecrate their budding years, their idealism and enthusiasm to the welfare of their country? Where are the youth who will generously pour out their blood to wash away so much shame, so much crime, so much abomination? Pure and spotless must the victim be, that the sacrifice may be acceptable! Where are you, youth, who will embody in yourselves the vigor of life that has lift our veins, the purity of ideas that has been contaminated in our hearts? We await you, O youth! Come, for we await you!' "

The youth should concentrately study their lessons so that they would be able to fulfill and satisfy Rizal's belief in youth.
