MERDEKA !

August 31, 2010

Are we really free from the shackles of our Colonial Masters ?

Or are we still being shackled till this very day, by our own doing!

Why I am penning this story is that it seems to me that we are not  really Independent at all still!

I do have my reasons for saying so, this is a very SAD state of affair, when we have the PM announcing in his MERDEKA speech that this country will self destruct if we continue to harp on “ole issues and forgone ideas of the past!” He is pleading for all to stop harping on racial issues and all its’ sensitivity!

He asked of us all Malaysians to put away our differences and move ahead and grow! How can we ever do so when we have “kacau daun” fellows walking this earth and on this land called MALAYSIA !

They provoke and create tension amongst the populace and they want the country to SINK ! Of course they all have a secret agenda as well, which all of us KNOW very well indeed!

I pity the poor PM, when he, on our 53rd Merdeka Day pleads with the nation to stand up as one and while his  so called own friends are sabotaging his very noble efforts up front clearly, as clear as the blue skies can be!

How can we all be free, when we are still feeling indifferent towards each other?

I love the Regent of Perlis, the ruler of the tiny little state in the North, he stood before his home crowd and took a good look at things and he came out with a very good classic example of ONE MALAYSIA!

YES, HE SAID LOOK AT THE ROYAL RANGER CORP/REGIMENT (RRD), he is the Corp Chairman of the RRD.

He said: ” It is made up of 26 ethnic entities of Malaysians in one single REGIMENT of soldiers, who bravely fought the Communists & Indonesian Insurgents as well!”

That is truly ONE-MALAYSIA at its best, nothing can beat that and this regiment is originally called the ‘SAWARAK & SABAH RANGERS’

THEY NOT ONLY FOUGHT THE ENEMIES, THEY HELPED KEPT THE PEACE DURING THE MAY 13th RIOTS IN KL TOO! OFF COURSE THEY HELPED IN NATION BUILDING AS WELL !

For this nation to be truly Independent I must say we throw away our image of you and I are different ! I  have more rights and privilege over you, inequality never ever created peace but more troubles!

Maybe it would take another 1,000 more years, this land will be forever divided as long as we do not behave as one nation and one people!

I was reminded by some good friends and they said that the USA took hundreds of years to be where and what they are today, so did the Brits, we are just 53 only, my question is how long more are we to wait and not want to change and be truly a free NATION, in all sense of the word!

All leaders must be sincere in their quest for a Nation built on trust and honesty, not on hatred and suspicion !
