My own country is corrupt beyond borders, but there is still hope. I look forward to that day. So, a daughter of my friend is getting input on projects or activities that will promote camaraderie and over-all well-being of youngsters in our locality. They thought of organizing more Sports events. As my conversation with a friend deepen, I gave her my suggestion. In as much as Sports is important, it should not be the sole focus of their program. Maybe, the council can talk about other projects that will have an impact or that will help these young people in their adult life. I suggested, Career Guidance Seminar, Computer Literacy and maybe some talks about Online opportunities, I also suggested Personality Development Seminars and Self-awareness sessions. I told her that we can invite speakers, I know some. I mean, if we are going to think of these as worthless and that the young people will eventually forget. Why couldn’t I? Exposure to these can mean a lot in building the youth’s integrity and broaden their horizons. There is a world out there. I noticed that people silences themselves and succumbs to doing nothing because it’s becoming the way of life. I hope I am wrong. There will be challenges and there will be resistance, and that’s good. When people question something, it means they are moving towards understanding it better. Understanding leads to better deciding on whether it will be good for them or not.
So, I appeal to you, dear online geeks. What can you suggest that the young people come up with? It can be any activities, projects or advocacy.
Thank you for your help.

Sis, your suggestions are all good. What did your friend say? Forming a blogging group will also be nice. 🙂 By the way, if you’ll have a career day sort of activity, I’m free to share my work as showbiz journalist. Hahaha!
OMG! I love that! I am in Bohol so you’ll have to come here. Hehe. Anyway, we’ll be happy to have you here. These young people will be static about it. No final touches yet but I will present that to my friend’s daughter because she always asks for my opinion.
Thanks! Thanks a lot, sis! 🙂
That means so much!
I pray all goes well with your venture. With your passion for blogging, have you considered forming a writing group?
Thanks, Tony! 🙂
Have not thought of that. Honestly, I can’t even point out exactly what this blog is for. I have been restlessly trying to figure out my own goal for this blog. It’s like the blog is as confused as I am. 🙂 If I will form a writing group, should we have at least a vision that would direct and guide us with our write-ups?
What are your thoughts?
You could start with a vision, but you wouldn’t have to. One of the blessings of writing is that, as we write about those things for which we have passion, our voice and vision can emerge. 🙂
Totally right. Taking note of your suggestion. 🙂
