COMMENT | I have been described as being "morbid" by some when I was young, when I told friends that we should never think we will live long, or even live forever.
I started talking about "what if I died before 30?" And when I did not, I shifted the last lap to 40, and so on.
I am turning 78 this year and I am always asking myself "what if I died tomorrow?" Certainly, it's not being "morbid". Only being realistic.
As such, I put my tenure in public service in that context. To do whatever good that I can. To put nation before self. To contribute my small efforts, within the bigger team, to help leave a better Malaysia for the generations of Malaysians coming after us.
