Assalamualaikum. Finally and gladly, it is Friday today. Had band this afternoon and had fun actually. Wow, I must give a standing ovation to Jacelyn for being able to play ll the songs that I requested on the vibraphone. Tong Hua, Gu Dan Bei Ban Qiu, Yue Liang Tai Biao Wo De Shin, I Believe I can Fly and etc. She's really good at it. How I wish I can have and acquired such musicality. I just hope in any other future music pieces that we going to embark on will give her the room to show her big talent. While Ismail, Nabil and Fazlan having lunch, Ismail told us about one criminal case in some rural countries and how he was punished. Gosh. That poor little guy had his hand laid on the ground and a car was slowly drove over it. What is more saddening is that the criminal was only 8 years of age and he was only guilty of stealing a pathetic slice of bread as he was really hungry and poor. Being in such a plight, can't the judge spare some sympathy for him.
I just do not know just how much humanity is left in our country. People are seeing life as something that is so worthless. Harsh comments are given. Do you think harsh comments can wake you up and work harder? Some people might agree but I beg to differ. Why do you actually do better after being scolded or treated harshly? It is because there is the angst within you that intrigue your mind to do things much better the next time round so that you are able to prove the one who scolded you wrong. It is just that. Nothing more complex.
I will just keep on praying and holding on tightly to this little moral values that had been inculcated in me since young. Also, I hope that there are still some preserved humanity left in the world. The norm, is now- Be harsh, Be cruel, then people will obey and respect you! People, let diminish this thought away from our mind!
