Should I Run?
February 22, 2008 1 Comment
The 2010 elections are coming. And with it coming close day after day, we must make a decision.
I see a necessity for the youth to take a stand, to make this country a better place. But how?
As for me, I have made a decision. I have decided to participate in the 2010 elections, not only as a voter, but as a candidate. I am not yet sure for what position, but maybe it will be as municipal councilor or provincial board member. This decision, however, may still change.
Why have I decided to run in the first place? I do not have funds to sustain it. I do not have a clout. But nonetheless, I am willing to take the chances.
At some point, the youth must take a stand; a BOLD stand. We must be able to make a decision to stand up for this country. And the youth must take chances. This nation needs people who would have the spirit to take a chances and try to make this country a better place to live in. No matter how hard it is, I think this nation needs young blood to lead its way to the future.
I am not a perfect leader; I am not even the best leader. But I am willing to serve this country. I am willing to help reconstruct a nation ruined by traditional politics and nepotism.
I hope that the other youth make ways to help this nation. If I don’t, who will?
