All children have a mother tongue. We human beings started to learn our mother tongue before we were born. The mother tongue is a chain that binds us to our own history. Each one of us is a ring in the chain of generations, a ring in our own mother tongue. If any ring grows weak, the whole chain will be weak. Every generation has to make sure that their ring is strong enough to add the next ring onto the chain. Our personal duty is to transfer the mother tongue to the next generation. By passing on our language, the mother tongue, to the next generation, we ourselves guarantee that life itself will continue into the future.
