Today is one historic day! As of July 27, 2014, Sunday, the population of the Philippines has hit 100 million.
According to rappler.com: “…every 15 seconds, 1 baby is born; every minute, there are 4 new Filipinos.”
The Philippines is the 12th most populous country in the world. With this in mind, we should also be aware of the immense number of people who are not given the proper health care and family planning education.
The youth of today will be the prime movers and leaders of tomorrow. Having children, much more raising them, is a great responsibility, and one has to be prepared for it.
