In the patriotic sense, loyalty therefore, is not given, it is earned. And I quote, "Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty."
Even though I can choose any country I want to live in, I still choose Malaysia. At times, she may have her downs, her ugliness, her imperfection, her destitution, her insecurities, and her unrest...but she also have her ups, her beauty, her wholeness, her assurance, her wealth, her peace. In spite of and because of those, it's the only home I can truly call my own. I don't know about you but I'm counting my blessings that I was born here instead of somewhere else.
This is a Happy Malaysian post and I don't care what you may think or say. No matter what is currently broiling in my country, I will still stand by it.
HAPPY NATIONAL DAY MALAYSIA!
