YOUTH OF THE NEW MILLENNIUM

(Do you know where we’re going to . . ?)

By Felicidad D. Javier ‘Liit’ Javier last appeared in Misyon in the March-April 2008 issue when she recalled her time as an Associate Missionary of the Assumption in Cameroon. People nowadays trek the lonely road of isolation . . . fewer risks, no commitment . . . just me and my selfishness and the concept of my world behind the walls of reality and enveloped in many painful realizations. Just observing people’s habits and behavior, especially in the home among children and adults, I see the sad reality that, without our knowing, we are slowly going down the pit – that ‘sinkhole’ where we have built a little monster of character - insensitive, indifferent, defiant, self-serving and lacking in charity.
