As I reach the autumn of my years, I look at my children and grandchildren with a bit of concern for what lies ahead for them and our young Filipinos. We are now over 105 Million with the greater majority reaching the age of 25 or younger. The young today harbor some insecurities and fears about what is going on around them. At the rate our population is growing, roughly 2.5 Million per year, how will the quality of life be when our grandchildren reach the age of 60? Will we have enough resources to feed, satisfy and address their needs?
Meanwhile, the danger of war lurks beneath the surface. Will we be spared from this danger — should wide-scale conflict break out? There is so much anger and hatred in the world. How do we spread kindness, tolerance and patience?
I am also concerned with the decreasing sense of spirituality among our Filipino youth. Fewer and fewer young Catholics go to Church. Do they still pray? Many young parents are so occupied with work and the struggle to keep ahead that they fail to prioritize or even give importance to the Catholic values by which they themselves were raised.
