A Malaysian Mum from Bahamas: Rock On Bahama Mama!
This is a cute message that I found on Zorro’s blog from a concerned Malaysian Mum from Nassau, Bahamas expressing her abhorrence for bullies, which in this case happens to be an unjust government who has no qualms on using draconian and archaic laws to detain its own citizens indefinitely without trial.
You guys in Bahamas are true Anak Bangsa Malaysia. Oh, and I would like to add that…..YOU ROCK TOO BAHAMA MAMA!!
If we all have this sensitivity and abhorrence to bullying, no matter when we realise it, we cannot stand by while bullying occurs, whether it’s by a kid on a playground or by an unjust government. We have to thank the educators in our midst, the teachers, the activists, the volunteers, the whistle-blowers, the journalists, the investigative reporters and Barisan Rakyat bloggers in Malaysia; individuals who have decided that it isn’t enough to be good only in theory. These individuals who take their guts in their hands each day to stand up for what is so wrong even though it is institutionalised. In Malaysia, these individuals who have come to shout together and educate their fellow people are Bangsa Malaysia.
You people who have stood up and not only shouted out your concerns and your ideas and you willingness to ACT, but have actually ACTED; I say to you: ROCK ON KAWANS! You have even influenced the tiny group of Malaysians here in the Bahamas to identify ourselves as Malaysians and not Chinese-Malaysian or Indian-Malaysian. YOU ROCK! Don’t stop now, you have come so far in such a short time. The time is right for justice to be served.
