Yours truly had been engaged in a most extraordinary and fun experience being a part of the Kembara Merdeka Ramadhan 2011 convoy on a roadtrip across the State, wielding a hand-flag and an emblem of pride and joy in our souls, and quiet humility. Where else could you feel the burden of your country, the pride burning in your bosom, and the emotional elation than by being right smack in the middle of it?
Some other people in some other countries have chaos, war, catastrophe, famine, flood, endless bloodshed, epidemic, earthquake, political uprising, terrorists, suicidal bombings, caste, renegades, religious upheaval, hijacks, and many unsafe and sleepless nights.
Count ourselves blessed that we live in Malaysia, a land of milk and honey, of opportunity, of equality, and of tranquil peace. Amen.
Wear your colors with pride. It's the only one you got.
Happy Merdeka Month!
