"IF WE COULD SEE INSIDE OTHERS' HEARTS"



"IF WE COULD SEE INSIDE OTHERS' HEARTS"



Often we tend to be judgemental from what we see.hear and feel especially on social media.Too often we are be wrong.This result in many innocent and good people suffering in pain and injustice meted onto them for their perceived wrongs.

We fail to understand, sometimes not even bothered to understand,the behavior of others – our family, friends, strangers and even foes.

If you could stand in someone else’s shoes
Hear what they hear
See what they see
Feel what they feel
Would you treat them differently?

If only we take some pains to see inside others’ hearts and understand their plight,our society will be a better place for all.

 The following video illustrates something humanity has to ponder

60th Merdeka 2017 - 'Negaraku: Sehati Sejiwa'



Clinging onto fading hope

Image result for merdeka 2017Like me, many Malaysians in their sixties, would be marking this 60th Merdeka of our nation with heavy hearts. Having seen better times before we are disturbed to see the state of affairs in the country today. Our nation is being plagued by a number of ills that makes our hearts painful.

As a nation we have made tremendous progress since our independence, but today we seem to be losing all that we have achieved. These achievements did not come to us freely but earned by the sweat and toil by all of us, regardless of race, creed and political believes. 

The ills in our country today that must be addressed with some urgency are:
1. Racial and religious polarisation that is leading to tension among the races. Racial and religious unity and goodwill has become a top priority in the country.
2. Failed education system leading to declining levels of moral values and standards in all areas. We are failing to produce people of calibre and integrity. There is lack of role models in every aspect of Malaysian life today
3. Financial mismanagement with massive corruption and escalated cost of living that has become a big burden to the people.
4. Blatant abuse of power and lawlessness leading to high crime rate and insecurity for the people
5. Politicisation and commercialisation of all services and all aspects of life

The just concluded KL2017 Sea Games may give us some hope that all is not lost. The victory in the games may bring some feel-good effects but it will take much more commitment, determination and sacrifices on our part and especially of our leaders to bring the right changes for lasting peace, harmony and prosperity for our people.The contribution of every citizen counts towards realising this aim of creating a united and progressive nation that we were once proud of in the world.

The coming 14GE offers us another chance to save the nation. As citizens let’s do our part and hope and pray that our leaders do theirs to bring the nation back in the right direction.

Selamat Hari Merdeka ke-60

Mother's Day 2017 - A mother's unconditional love




This short story a mother and her teenage daughter highlights the unconditional love of a mother for her rebellious daughter who runs away from home, in search of freedom. Despite being hurt so much, the mother still did everything for her out of the love she had for her.


Runaway Daughter Finds A Strange Kindness, Finds Her Way Home
 "Mom, you need to give me some space!" she cried out.
She was sick of her mother's nagging. One day, she decided enough was enough and took the extreme step -- she ran away from home.
With nowhere to go, and no money in her pocket, she met a kind stranger. A stranger who cooked her a meal for free.
A meal that seemed a bit too familiar. How did this stranger know her likes and dislikes? Why was she so kind?
And then the stranger told her about someone even kinder than her. Someone we often take for granted. Someone who has always been there for us from the moment we were born. Someone who loves us, cares for us, puts her own needs aside, and always thinks of us first. Someone who deserves a little more kindness and consideration than what she usually gets.
We all know that someone is none other than our own mother.
The following video is a reminder of a mother’s love for her child that cannot be matched by any other. It is touching and inspiring.


Comments
 In our lives there is only person in the world who for certain be willing to lay down her life for us, and that is none other than our mother. There is no greater love than that of a mother. However bad you are and however badly you hurt her, she is the one and only person who will forget and forgive everything and continue to sacrifice for you and for your return.

There is never a feeling of revenge in her heart for her children. Till her last breath she will go all out to serve you as she did from the time she gave birth to you, feed you and shed tears when you cried in pain.

She is the first face of God in our lives. She brought you into the world enduring so much pain, don't make her life painful and let her leave the world with such pain too.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all mothers wherever they are and in whatever state they may be in.
