"It's an exciting time to be alive." My colleague and friend, Anna Oposa says. This is the exact same thing my forefathers had said when my country gained our (Philippine) independence from the 300-year Spanish regime, or during the time when ignorance was ignored and the beginning of curiosity was encouraged and awakened the world during the Renaissance, or when the Americans revolted against authority that was unbending through the American Revolution. I am confident we will rise through the greatest challenge in the history of our time and emulate the great generations before us who have made pivotal moments that have defined our present and we will become another great generation who will provide generations after us a bright & sustainable human future. I resonate Anna's sentiments, it is an exciting time indeed.
