Dr. Jose P. Rizal's "To the Filipino Youth": Dr. Jose Rizal's poem "To the Filipino Youth" is largely intended to convey the value of one's love and admiration for his dialect or language, as it serves as a bridge and mediator linking people's countries. Rizal congratulated himself in the poem. He did not hope that his words would be heard in America, France, or England, but only in the Philippines where he believed that there were many educated people who could understand them.
In the poem, Rizal expresses his hope that the youth will never forget their country's language because without it, they would be cut off from each other. He also hopes that they will keep alive their traditions and culture so that one day they will be able to reunite once again. At the end of the poem, Rizal asks God to give him strength to continue writing even if nobody reads what he has to say.
I believe that Rizal wanted the youth to know that the language they speak is very important because it is the way they can connect with their family members and friends. He also wants them to know that despite living in another country, they have not changed their nationality and are still part of the nation. Last but not least, Rizal wants them to keep alive their traditions and culture so that one day they will be able to reunite once again.
The poem "To the Filipino Youth" was written by Jose Rizal and dedicated to the youth of the Philippines. He wished for the Filipino young to use their abilities, talents, and skills to distinguish themselves not only for their personal acclaim and success, but also for the praise and success of their country, the Philippines. In his poem, Rizal calls on the youth to be courageous and strong in character so that they can face up to any challenge or situation that may arise.
Some parts of the poem are as follows:
Ere dawn the day, be sure your armor's bright;
Your sword unblunted, your stance light and quick;
For the enemy will seek to bring you down.
If you meet him now with courage and strength,
You'll overcome this bold brigand's force.
But if you tremble before a mere boy,
Rizal's message in his poem is very clear: Be vigilant and aware at all times. Keep yourself protected at all times. Always be prepared because life can turn on a dime. Use your head and don't be afraid to take risks but without putting yourself in danger.
Rizal speaks of the Filipino youth as the "fair hope of my motherland" in his poem "To the Philippine Youth," which he wrote in 1879, when he was 18 years old (and which won a prize from the literary group), and of the "Indian land" whose "son" is offered "a shining crown" by the "Spaniard... with wise and merciful... eyes."
The Indian land referred to here is India, which at that time was part of the Spanish Empire. Rizal was born in what is now the Philippines but was then part of Spain's colony of the Indies (as Indias was then called). He took its name when it became independent from Spain in 1946. The poet refers to the young Filipinos as his "children" who will have to fight for their country's freedom.
He calls on them to believe in themselves and their nation. Let each one do his best to make himself worthy of being called her son. Let us all work together for the common good. Only thus can we ensure a safe and prosperous future for our country.
In conclusion, Rizal asks God to watch over the Filipino youth and protect them.
Jose Rizal penned "My Fellow Children" to encourage young people to use their skills and be the best they can be. He also composed it to inspire young people to be proud of who they are, and the first step in doing so is to communicate or talk in their mother tongue or native language.
Rizal's essay comes at a time when many countries around the world are falling behind in teaching their native languages to their children. This idea inspired many national movements such as Peru's annual week of Spanish language education (Spanish: Semana del Español), which has been held every year since 1959. The goal of these movements is to promote the learning of native languages at a national level.
In conclusion, "My Fellow Children" urges young people to take pride in themselves and their country. It also encourages them to learn about other cultures and religions while at the same time preserving one's own identity.
