BLOSS Is Celebrating Youth Day

Today 16 June 2020, BLOSS Is Celebrating Youth Day with South Africa. Why is this day important?

It is so important that we continue to remember two key learnings from the 1976 massacre: that decisions taken that impact all South Africans should be made in the best interest of all South Africans and that the youth have the power, the spirit and the potential to shape our future. We should be embraced and encouraged to strive for meaningful change.

“If you are more fortunate than others, build a longer table, not a taller fence”.

Youth Day is a holiday dedicated to the youths of a country. It is observed by 18 countries, on many dates throughout the year.

This Youth Day, as South Africa faces the threat of COVID-19, we look to our young people more than ever to contribute innovative solutions to the economic & social challenges that lie ahead. Our youth really do have the power to build a better society and a better world -President Cyril Ramaphosa

It is important to learn from the past and to live with a hope for a better future, a future that is appropriate for our children and future generations.

One Young World Ambassadors share-

“Youth day is the realisation of a vision and a dream fought for by thousands of South African youths. It is a celebration of youth, power and unity, how we as young people can impact the world if we put our minds to it. We look back at June 16, 1976, not only to reflect on how far we’ve come but to remind ourselves to keep moving forward. It is imperative that the youth of today see the benchmark of the fallen soldiers that had so little materially but great willpower and passion to fight”.

When you’re young, you think everything you do is disposable. You move from now to now, crumpling time up in your hands, tossing it away. You’re your own speeding car.

What should you do with your life today? Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured.

To the youth of today, be the scriptwriters of your destiny and feature yourselves as stars that showed the way towards a brighter future -Nelson Mandela.

The youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow.

Young people are part of the bouquet of a society, but their role is more important than others. They are integral and essential part of a society and a society is incomplete without young blood. Therefore it is said: “Today’s youths are the force, hope and leaders of tomorrow because they are the future of society, country and community”.
