One thing we need to keep in mind is that despite the defeat of Pakatan Harapan and the return to power of the crooks and kleptocrats, it’s not the end of the world. We may have suffered a setback but the battle is far from over.
Malaysia Baru is, after all, more than a political construct; it’s a dream we carry in our hearts. And for so long as we continue to cherish it and never give up on it, it will live on. And no one can take that from us.
It may be just seeds of hope right now but if we keep watering it and nurturing it, one day, when we least expect it, it will spring up once more to claim the allegiance of this nation. Malaysia Baru has a tryst with destiny that none can stop.
So let everyone who calls himself or herself “Malaysian” press on and never give up. Still the voices of despair within. Don’t allow discouragement and defeat to determine your course. We are down but far from out. The real battle for Malaysia Baru has just begun!
