"Giving no arrest or control to the youth's wanton use of this items (e.g. Ipod, Computers, Mp3s, Gadgets etc.) is propagating the culture of oblivion"
The article made me realized that being a technology addict or "tech geek" makes a person unaware of his/her surrounding, that people nowadays is hooked in this trend and spent much of their time using gadgets and cellphones to satisfy their wants. Competing with others with the latest gadgets and equipment in the market.
Most people nowadays had their own cellphones (even a grade school student that I saw holding his android phone) giving them to communicate instantly and everywhere in their convenient, but others do it in a different way. Mostly, high school students use it for socializing which gave them an opportunity to join a group of other users or what they called now "clan" which frequently occupies their time. Instead of studying, they became habituated to peso-to-peso cellphone loading, day in and day out, for not-so-urgent calling or texting to waste of money and time.
Our environment, nowadays, consist of this unusual sights such as badly situated market vendor, beggars, rugby users and other environmental eyesores which only shows that we must act and cooperate to what we can contribute to our community, especially to the young one's future. Youth as to Jose P. Rizal's point of view as " the only hope of a nation." , recommends more cooperation and responsibility from parents in guiding their child in the proper way to use technology that can contribute to their study so we can raise a high morale citizen with sense of awareness in his/her environment.
Although we cannot blame technology to develop more of this equipment and gadgets, all that we can possibly do is to restore and promote a good inspiration and tradition.
