    Hi Ma’am Briones. The visit of the Young Turks was indeed a success. Many say that to make a difference, we should start with ourselves. It was refreshing to see a lot of Sillimanians attend the fora, ask questions and listen intently to what the young politicians had to say. This is perhaps because contrary to the ‘older’ politicians we see on television, the Young Turks were people we could relate to and people we could see ourselves become. And the fact that they were listening to mere students like us, gave us pride and made each one of us feel important in nation-building. Rarely do we meet people who make us want to act, and who empower us by believing we can truly make a difference. I hope that this is the beginning of a more involved student body here in Silliman. More power to the Young Turks! =)
