Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country

To all of us out there, me included.

Whilst we salute the many for what they have done and are doing, let us not overlook what we ourselves can do.

Each of us has his/her own worth and has his/her own skills and abilities that can assist the cause.

Do not belittle your own ability.

Let us each ask ourselves what we can do for ourselves, our people and our country and contribute to saving this nation.

It is a beautiful country and we have beautiful people and it is well-worth the effort.

For many, like me, we can tell ourselves: ” It is a far far better thing that I do than I have ever done. It is a far, far better Malaysia I strive for than I have ever known”.

It is widely believed, despite the heroic efforts of so many in our midst, that as things remain, Barisan Nasional will probably pull through with the help of phantom voters and its trickery, albeit with a further reduced majority.

We must not let it happen.

It is all in our hands.

This may, in our lifetime, be the only chance we have to put things right.

This nation, its people, our children and grandchildren deserve far better than what we have had to endure.

Let us each put our shoulders to the wheel and help face the juggernaut that is BN, not just by posting comments here but by doing much much more.

Time is short.

Our country and its peoples need us now.

Our children and future generations need us now.

Let us not in the future have to tell ourselves, ” I should have and I could have”.

At the very least, let us talk to our friends, our relatives and anyone we feel comfortable with and convince them of what needs to be done. Heck! Even talk to acquaintances and strangers if the opportunity permits. Do it whenever we can. Encourage them too, to go out and do the same.

Do not underestimate the multiplication effect of your efforts.

Make sure they go out and vote.

Let us do it for ourselves and leave the rest to God.

And do believe that ever has it been that good will finally triumph over evil.
