Pity the Nation by Kahlil Gibran

Aerial photo at the night of 29th August 2015

Remarks: on 29th and 30th August 2015, about 200,000 or more Malaysian came out on the street with 1 strong message to the Prime Minister "please step down". We, Malaysian desperately want him to stop from ruining everything. Suffice with what he had done thus far .... pity the nation, we love our Country!

Together we pray, together we unite.. keep your head up Malaysian

"Pity the nation that is full of beliefs and empty of religion.
Pity the nation that wears a cloth it does not weave,
eats a bread it does not harvest,
and drinks a wine that flows not from its own wine-press.

Pity the nation that acclaims the bully as hero,
and that deems the glittering conqueror bountiful.
Pity a nation that despises a passion in its dream,
yet submits in its awakening.

Pity the nation that raises not its voice
save when it walks in a funeral,
boasts not except among its ruins,
and will rebel not save when its neck is laid
between the sword and the block.

Pity the nation whose statesman is a fox,
whose philosopher is a juggler,
and whose art is the art of patching and mimicking.

Pity the nation that welcomes its new ruler with trumpeting,
and farewells him with hooting,
only to welcome another with trumpeting again.

Pity the nation whose sages are dumb with years
and whose strong men are yet in the cradle.
Pity the nation divided into into fragments,
each fragment deeming itself a nation"

Notes: Tomorrow we shall celebrate our 58th Independence Dy from the British.. may the sun comes after the rain.. Pray with us, answer our prayer ya Allah.. please, we have our faith only on you
