Be The Hero

The biggest lie politicians have sold us is that we are victims, and they are heroes coming to save us.

We participate in the lie by believing them. So don't blame only them. If we really cared about this country, let's do something every single day to change it, to change us.

I look up to my friends and colleagues who use social media to spread education, positivity and power. You know who you are.

I remind myself and others, complaining puts us into the victim hole, giving up responsibility for our salvation to someone else.

No Najib, No Hadi, No Mahathir, no one human being can change Malaysia, except us.

Let's vote, and tell them what we want them to do, every day, every week, every month. Not just every few years.


Let's help them do it. We aren't victims. We are the heroes.

Because if we aren't either of these, we become the villains.
