I refer to Smita Elena Sharma's letter Love for country not just only about food... I share her feelings, sentiments and disappointment in the way Malaysia is progressing. But unlike her, I will not even think of leaving Malaysia.
I will never, ever give up hope.
I will never abandon my countrymen in their fight for justice.
I will stand side-by-side with them when they voice their opinions.
I will support and give encouragement to them when they feel there's no progress being made.
I will lend them all my strength and might.
I will stay and be proud to be counted among them and...
I will teach my children to always fight for their rights.
What I will not do is to tuck my tail in and run away, blabbering and telling tales to foreigners,
I will not hide away in foreign lands.
This is my country,
This is where I will fight,
And if Malaysia demands that I give all of myself;
Let it be known that I will gladly do so!
