The greatest national asset a country can boast of is its youth. A country is as strong as its youth is strong; it is as gifted as its youth is gifted. Leaders and rebels know this well.

No matter how trite the adage that, "Our youth are the leaders of tomorrow, " it is still very true . Hence the necessity of all institutions which train these future citizens and future leaders to step aside from time to time, in order to evaluate their successes and failures, and above all to appraise their philosophy.
