I would like to share with readers, an email that I had received from Kamal Omar, reflecting his personal grievance at what is happening to the country today. I share his personal grievance........what about you?

by Kamal Omar – Anak Malaysia

Day by day as it goes by, never had we stooped so low. That's how I personally felt today. We were once Malaysia, the pride within the region. We stood tall among our ASEAN members, be it political, economy, social, security be it.

Out of WW 11, through the wake-up call came the long years of communist insurgency. We were made to come together as one, as to rub-shoulders and struggled, strive with lost of lives, fell with grace and glory and certainly with beaming pride, merely to seek for the sake of independence and democracy, to be followed with our eventual Merdeka.

But after all these years, where are we today? Are we any better? In fact, I feel sort of shy to ask these questions, what more being asked by foreigners/tourists. Instead of focusing on the world-wide deteriorating economy, we (the political figures) are fighting and pointing fingers at each other while the rakyat are being sidelined and suffering. It's a real shame.

To add salt to the wound, the recent happenings in Perak! Just unbelievable! All those responsible for the uncalled for upheaval, shame on you all. Calling yourself our leaders? Take a good look of yourself in the mirror. MALU. You all seemed to forget the suara rakyat – they just want an immediate call for fresh elections in Perak. Nothing more, nothing less. That's the only way to go about it and to proof your leadership credibility.

Dear Kamal,

While I share your sentiments about the sad situation we are facing now regarding the quality of our politicians, the major blame however, is still heaped on us for failing to do our part.
As they always say, 'we get what we deserve'.In the name of race and religion we have allowed them to hijack our national agenda for their own benefit.

We should be aware and proactive in what is happening around us so that our future generations will not blame us.
