Merdeka! The waving flag of hope for the voice, freedom.



Two more days and its gonna be another year of independence. Just like another normal day to pass. Well, I don't seem to be patriotic as much as I was back then. Maybe it is because they keep having the same kind of festival scenes each year? Or is it because there is something about our country which we are not proud of which makes people protest? Or maybe its because the three races are not living as one people anymore? Well, it's sad to observe that many Malaysians have come to a point whereby they feel comfortable only with their own kind? Well, I find tat really absurd. Why Should we bother to judge a person by his skin colour?

That's why the Malaysians need a deeper acceptance that there is only ONE race and that is the human race! Was it ever meant to accuse each other of being Malaysian Chinese, Indian and Malay mercenaries? To other? Absolutely not. school history books claim that the Chinese and Indian are "orang pendatang". If you look objectively, we are ALL kaum pendatang! I get sick and tired of morons telling me,"Hey! Go back to China la! You're not meant to be here!"
I am what I am because I'm not a Chinese but a Malaysian Chinese and same goes for Indians who are addressed as Malaysian Indians. People should not just emphasize their own tribal ideas but share ideas together for greater mutual understanding. The gathering of the three major races together with each of their own unique ethnicity to share a common destiny is what makes Malaysia special.

Let us all harmoniously celebrate independence, our country, our home. "MERDEKA! MERDEKA! MERDEKA! MERDEKA! MERDEKA!MERDEKA! MERDEKA!" (The voice of our very own Bapa Kemerdekaan, Tunku Abdul Rahman)
