United... We're Not...

Which part of the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) has gone wrong? Did they go so wrong that they're only holding on to three states instead of five? The number in parliament was almost nearing half of the total seat allocated. Time to look back and recollect ourselves. Almost everyone that I know in the Facebook has been mourning the loss of Pakatan Rakyat. 

We have forgotten to ask ourselves whether we were ready to face any turmoil if the opposition wins. We're not ready at all to face any sort of unrest. We've been in our comfort zone for too long and the only way we know how to fight back is through updating our status in Facebook, blogging like what I'm doing now or maybe write up a better article with very strong underlying current flowing across the readers' eyes in the local dailies. We're not capable to fight tooth for tooth and eye for eye. We will never stoop so low as to whack another person with the helmet or punch a person in the eye just because that person is the supporter of a different party. We can't even face not having food for a day. Thus, we're ill-prepared for any such predicament. We prayed for the will of God to be done on earth as it is in heaven. God knows better than any of us.

Are we united? In Penang, majority of the Chinese is united. Look beyond that, we're not as united as that. How do we win the hearts of a multi-racial nation? Action speaks louder than words. The folly of us as a Chinese is we're self-centred. You have to agree with me on that. We're not one who give willingly without thinking the benefit for self first. If we've been willing to give, we wouldn't wait until the election campaign kicks off and then start giving out promises to the people. 

It's not just Chinese that we have to think of. There are other races that make us so unique. We're Malaysians. Have you ever wonder how come all the seats in Sarawak are allocated as parliament seats? That... I have been wondering but since my knowledge of politics is as shallow as a puddle of mud I have no idea why. If only PR can really go into the interior of Sabah and Sarawak and reach out to the people sincerely. It's not promises that they need, it's the basic necessities.

A seed was planted in my head this morning. Christians should do more for this country. We can do more for Sabah and Sarawak. We can go in as missionaries. It's easier said than done but with God, nothing is impossible. But are Christians united? No... we split ourselves into so many denominations. Even if we come together in prayer, there's bound to be division. The spirit of division comes from Satan which we unknowingly give in to. We've been used by Satan to bicker and complain instead of carrying out our duties. Prayer meetings are usually shunned away because we only like the worship part, not praying. But if it's Christmas celebration, people come in by the droves, wearing their very best. Where's the heart for God and the country?

Do you remember the moral question which we did when we were in school? There's always this question in essay stating that if ever there's a war breaking out in Malaysia, will we stay put and fight till the very end or will be run to another country? In order to get full marks, we wrote everything positive like staying put, carry out our responsibilities as good citizens to fight for the country. In our hearts, we were saying that we would be the first person to hop onto the next plane and go as far away as possible. Even teenagers are not willing to attend National Service for 3 months. 

So, how much do we really love Malaysia? That's a question that need serious thinking... I'm asking myself that as well.
