Happy Malaysia Day 2012
Let’s unite across our divide
from Eastern states of Sabah and Sarawak and their fellow citizens from the peninsula
states commemorate and important day in their history – Malaysia day, the day Malaysia
was born 49 years ago on September 16, 1963.
we were officially one nation but far too long we were divided not only physically
by the vast South China Sea but in almost every aspect of our lives, culture, language,
religion and even in our thoughts. In fact we have been and continue to be
strangers to one another despite being citizens of one nation.
scenario of divisiveness must change for the better. Citizens from across the divide
may have their differences but as Malaysians they must unite to exert their
rights to determine their common destiny as a nation. Half a century of divide
and rule is a long time, during which they have lost many of their rights and
cherished dreams in their Motherland that is blessed with vast natural
resources. It is time for them to unite and harness the power of that unity to fight
for their rights and justice for all. Their destiny is their own hands and not
in the hands of their political leaders who come and go. It is in unity can their
regain their losses.
Let's unite, Malaysians
from west and east, to create a better Malaysia for all, regardless of race and
creed. Let's vote with the wisdom bestowed upon us by the Almighty for change, a
change that will bring about the dawn of a new Malaysia, where its people of
diverse cultures and believes can walk tall and proud to call themselves ‘anak Malaysia.’
