Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka!
To all Malaysians, Happy Merdeka Day!
I watched the Malayan Emergency on History Channel again while waiting for the countdown to midnight.
It reminded me what my elders had to go through for us to arrive to where we are now and make me value the security forces more than ever to ensure that the majority were protected from the vagaries of the few who were determined to have their way regardless.
May we continue to be free from those who wish to forcefully impose their will and ways on others through whatever means and may Malaysia continue to be a safe and peaceful place for all of us.
