Happy Independence Day!

As a child I never really appreciated what it meant to be an Independent Country. Why did we need to be Independent? Why do we need to be self-suficient? Why did we need an independent economy? What could ever happen to us? Why did we need to govern ourselves? Why can't we let someone else do that for us and we just live as we used to? In a simple life.

As I grew up and traveled to a few places in the world and also learning about the stability of world peace. I learned that Malaysia is a very very special country. We have no war. We have no serious natural disasters. We have an abundance of nature's gifts. We are multiracial. We are one of the most developed of the developing Nations. But most important of all we are have a prosperous peaceful period, which I pray and hope will last.

For young and old, ignorant or knowledgeable. We need to celebrate our independence day to celebrate our gift of peace.
