Staying united as Malaysians

Staying united as Malaysians

Aug 28, 2021

Malaysia has kept her independence for 58 years. She has gone through challenging moments along the course of time. Now the pandemic has hit the globe and Malaysia. Being united is the key to winning this battle. United in prayer and action, regardless of our background, will let us prevail. Happy Malaysia Day, United we prevail. — Ricki Boy Hasim

August has always been a special month for Malaysians. We are celebrating our 64th National Day this year and COVID-19 will not stop us from celebrating this meaningful occasion. We should stay stronger than ever to fight this pandemic and help those who need help, especially during this difficult time. Hopefully, this pandemic will end soon. Together as a nation — Keluarga Malaysia, let us celebrate this Merdeka Day with pride while staying safe! Happy Merdeka! — Elizabeth Tan Eng Som, Church of the Holy Redeemer, Tg Malim. Perak

There will be no spirit of Malaysia if there is no Malaysia. At the same time, there will be no Merdeka without people to celebrate it. The citizens of Malaysia are the core of the celebration. It is the species which makes the genus live. It is vital for everyone to show more care for the people around us, and this starts with our family members. Inevitably, there will be conflicts, and we may feel like giving up. However, the zeal to persevere is what makes for a wonderful country. Do not be overcome by the initial fear but embrace and journey with it. And that’s how we roll. — Seminarian Clementi Wong

My Merdeka Day 2021 celebration amidst the COVID-19 pandemic is to relive the glory of Merdeka indoors.

To light candles in colours of the Jalur Gemilang, to thank Almighty God for the many blessings He has showered upon our beloved nation, for the relative peace, harmony and love.

To cook a scrumptious Malaysian feast to pay tribute to the nation while enjoying time together with family members, flying the flag to show a spirit of love and respect for the country.

To host a Virtual Merdeka Hangout with friends to relive the nostalgic Merdeka in the good old days before the pandemic.

May God continue to uplift the country's glory!

Happy Merdeka Day to Archbishop Julian Leow, the bishops, the priests and all fellow Malaysians. — Annie Pereira, Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, KL
