If you are a Malaysian patriot,please stand up

If I ask this question to the 30 odd million Malaysians ,I dare bet that everyone would standup in a blink.

What would such a response show? That all of us regardless of our political affiliation ,race,religious beliefs, gender, educational background, social status etc believe that we are Malaysians and this sense of belonging unites us as one.

We see this bond especially when we meet another Malaysian outside Malaysia.Yet, within our shores ,it is a different story.

But it was not like this before. People from the time of Independence ,did feel proud to be Malaysians but this feeling has waned today.

Why? Because we are not proud of what our Malaysia has become, right?

But if we believe ourselves to be Malaysian patriots, we must restore this pride by correcting the wrongs done against our beloved Malaysia.

The people of Egypt have demonstrated that they are patriots first regardless of their political affiliation.Its noteworthy that only one flag(not political party flags) is being waved,the Egyptian flag, a symbol of their unity.

The Egyptians stood up and took back their country from a corrupt regime and today they wave the Egyptian flag with pride.People power(Kuasa Rakyat) once again reigns supreme, as it has in the past ,under different names.

We too can restore Malaysia to its former glory but we can only do this if we stand up as One People.

As we begin this journey for a better Malaysia, lets rally and unite behind the Jalur Gemilang. Lets fly our Malaysian flag,include the flag in our blogs/websites/print media  and sing the Negaraku at every opportunity.And Godwilling ,we can be like the generation before us -fiercely proud to be Malaysians.

YES,we can!
