Recently, a friend asked in Twitter if anyone could recite the Rukun Negara.
She calls me patriotic.
For 11 years of my schooling life, I recite it every Monday morning during the school assembly. How can one not memorized it for life?
After the GE13, with everything said and done, and the, what I can only described as “madness” happening thereafter, I cannot stop thinking about the Rukun Negara. The unbelievable racial statements, the accusations, conspiracy theories, etc from BOTH sides are heartbreaking. More so when it was made by people I personally know.
I understand the tension. I really do.
However, we Malaysians are well known as the multi-racial country living in peace and harmony as one nation. Heck, we even boast about this fact out loud. Other countries respected and commended us for our unity.
And I am always so proud to share this with all the foreign people I meet at work.
I am proud to be Malaysian.
Unfortunately, our “insensitivity” and our ikut perasaan blogs, comments, statuses and tweets, may fracture this unique and beautiful bond.
Kesopanan & Kesusilaan.
We are a courteous and honorable nation.
So, let’s keep it that way.
The GE process went smoothly. I was nervous for nothing! (^_^)
