Before we are Barisan or Pakatan, We are Malaysian


Let us also demand Freedom from the Forgetful Politician, that is, those who forgot who voted them in. First off are those who insist that we should be grateful that they are there to lead us.

As shrill and discordant as our politics can be at times, it was a moment that reminded us of who we really are – and how much we depend on one another.

After all, this is still a time of great challenges for us to solve. We’ve got to grow jobs faster, and forge a stronger, more competitive economy. We’ve got to shore up our budget, and bring down our deficits. We’ve got to keep our people safe, and see to it that the Vision 2020 remains vibrant and alive for our children.

So as business resumes, We as people look forward to working together in that same spirit of common cause  – because before we are Barisan or Pakatan, we are Malaysian.

And as we perform the work of this nation, we prayer is that we stay true to our words, and turn to those examples of courage, and perseverance, to bring out the better in all of us.

Here and now, what we need is not just one country, but to share one love, one blood and one life. What we need is faith and courage to leave this dream world where there is no spoon, and reach a place high in the desert plain where the streets have no name.
