Many of us would agree that Malaysia is a beautiful country and a comfortable place to live in. It is blessed with natural beauty, tropical climate and is largely protected from any major natural catastrophe. Unsurprisingly, Malaysia has become a favourite golfing destination to many golfers.
What this country need is a little tender loving care. How often have we walked into a filthy, dirty and smelly wet market? Almost everyday. How often do we find rubbish littered and drain clogged neighbourhood and yet residents in the area continue to live their life as though they are not threatened by any health risk? Quite often.
Malaysians need to care more for their own country, society, community and neighbourhood. The state of our public transport system, education system, economy, governments, politics and public amenities reflects how much we care for this country. We have allowed them to rot and deteriorate.
We have allowed the politicians we have elected to continue using race and religion to sway us from focusing on their real incompetency and weaknesses. Some politicians are spending more time on their racial agenda more than trying to find useful solutions to help address some of these issues.
It is a myth that these racist politicians and political parties cannot be defeated. They prevailed because we had allowed them to do so.
It is time to focus on the real community heroes especially those who aspire no political power nor fame but have gone out in their small ways to help the poor, the unprivileged and the oppressed.
I would like to dedicate this blog to highlight the heroic efforts by some of our people. You help find these heroes, file a story and send us some pictures and we will highlight their story.
It is time not to depend too much on people (especially politicians) who are only working for their own selfish interests and not ours.
