Thank you for rekindling the fire within me. For opening my eyes. I used to be one of those youngsters who couldn’t be bothered to give two hoots for politics. For the past year, many circumstances have opened up my heart to politics, and showed me that we can control the faith of our country, that we need to speak up towards any injustice, that we need to be the change that we want to see in the future.
Tonight, I am saddened by the injustice, by the ‘dirty ploys’ in an attempt to secure what they do not deserve. But now, I understand that great changes do not happen overnight. It takes tremendous efforts and unwavering faith, most importantly, it takes countless sacrifices and unrequitable love for the country, in order to have the strength to continue on. Now, I have seen warriors like Lim Kit Siang and Anwar that have fought this battle for so many years, I know that I cannot give up.
So thank you, for making me realise how much I love this country.
