This site is dedicated to the youth of the land in fulfillment of Salvador H. Laurel’s fervent desire to impart to them the legacy of a proud history. He said:
History belongs to the youth, the largest and most idealistic and energetic segment of our population.
If I were to summarize the forces that brought about the birth of this nation, I would readily attribute it to the freedom fighters and the visionaries who were all young. It was the idealism, the daring, the pugnacity, the determination and the genius of Rizal, Bonifacio, Gregorio del Pilar and the legions of young heroes that brought forth the emergence of our nation a hundred years ago.
A nation is only as strong or as weak as the memory of its people as to who they are, where they came from, and what their forebears stood for and fought for. If the history of a nation is blurred or vague, we cannot expect our people to fight in defense of the motherland when she is threatened. They may even decide to abandon it and begin anew. But if, like a lambent flame, we are able to keep the pride, the spirit, the love, the vision and the memory steadily burning in the hearts of our people for the next one hundred years, then our generation would have fulfilled its task.
Unfolding via a medium cognizable by a sector which may not have been born at the time of his glorious political flight, this website will give us the opportunity to know the statesman, his life, advocacies, faith in our people, love for the country and his great belief in the Filipino youth. It celebrates the life of the man who could have been the 11th President of the Republic.
