BRAVE WORDS FROM A BRAVE ANAK BANGSA MALAYSIA.
YES, Datuk Zaid Ibrahim said those words to Haris last night. For most of last week Haris and I have been mulling over the happenings in the Pakatan camp and all this on the eve of the impending by-election at Permatang Pasir. We blogged about our predicament over the week but were still undecided as to the stand the Barisan Rakyat Bloggers will take. We were aware yesterday evening about the big-meet amongst the Pakatan leaders. Haris did say in his latest posting that we will sleep over this over the weekend.
No, BRB have never said that we can do wonders at by-elections. We always go in to contribute whatever we can. Mostly we give our time with a prayer and a hope that it will add to a New Malaysia. I remember this poem we learnt by heart in school: "Little drops of water, little drops of sand; makes a mighty ocean and a lovely land."
I have not spoken to Haris since last night.....but I will go into PP with an open mind, keeping in mind Datuk Zaid's brave words....and also because a friend had faith in what we set out to do. Al (not really his real name, but close enough) said this to me......."accept this (a 4 figure donation) and go help make this land a better place for my 3 year old daughter and her generation...."
Thanks Al, and to the others who caught some fish for our trip.......we will take it from here.
