Selamat Hari Merdeka, Malaysia.

On Freedom:

We are bound not by the shackles of any colonial master, but of our own making; our prejudices; a moral compass gone astray; and the misguided belief that the responsibility to act lies not within ourselves, but in the actions of others.

A nation is defined by the principles held dear by its people; and its fate is determined by nothing more than the will of the people. And if, at any point in time, the freedom to think and act is taken away from us, it would be through nothing less than our own inaction.
