A day to celebrate love in unison.
In the recent wake of viral hatred toward a person with authority who spoke with prejudice, the most sensible reaction from us was to preach love instead.
“A prophet is not someone with special visions, just someone blind to most of what others see.” The power of advocacy does not lie in the message, but the conviction a person has amidst an unforgiving status quo.
I was left high and dry after what had been the most beautiful relationship in my life, ended simply because of my race and religion. Our present state was not enough to guarantee a future.
I was confused, angry, disappointed, and stopped believing in love. My respect for them waned every time i think of the harsh remarks made on my race and religion. I was being a hypocrite.
Tears bring friends together as they say, and a good pal shared his wisdom to never lose sight of what you believe in.
When i was younger, dad advised to never judge someone’s moral because it is their exercise of autonomy. Why argue about what is not right to us when we can share our ideals to make a convincing stand.
If love brings happiness, then let us all share the word and smash the walls around our heart and mind that is blocking the ray of hope.
At a friend’s tahlil for his dad, Datuk Adnan Mohd Tahir, the love i felt from the crowd for this man and his family was deep and genuine. There is no justice in describing it in words as one should have been there to experience it. The power of emotion drowns our soul, so why should we fill it other than love?
Let us all celebrate love and we don’t even have to call it Valentine’s day because life is meaningless once your heart loses the ability to care for someone other than yourself.
I love you abah, mama, ayong, abang idris, a-a and my bromies, Hashim and Adly.
