This may sound a bit emotional ;)
"Selamat Hari Polis Malaysia ke-205" to my mum and dad in Penang who are probably working at this hour, my grandfather in Kelantan who is a police retiree and to my uncle and auntie who are a couple of police officers too. Alhamdulillah, I am proud to be a part of a big family of police; I don't care what the society thinks about "police" because they never know things.
They never know how sometimes my parents had to leave me with my younger siblings at home when they had to join various operations in order to keep the country safe; I was only a small boy back then. They never know that sometimes my parents had no time to check on their children because they were too busy solving crimes; that was a really long time ago when I thought that my mum and dad were like the Power Rangers. From inside the room I prayed for my parents' safety; then when I grew up I realized that they are in a far greater threat--the society.
I am just disappointed with some of the people around me who keep on blaming the police whenever an issue or controversy arises. They talked so much like they are so perfect and it hurts my feelings; not every police in Malaysia is corrupted, some are truly honest in carrying out their duties. I don't know...since today is the "Malaysian Police Day" so I believe that they deserve a break. Let us see what will happen to this country when the police is not around okay? I hope that the people who talks so much can prove me that he or she can do better in protecting the country; "complaint" is their middle name anyway, pun intended!
To my "Power Rangers" in Malaysia, keep your head held high and never let anybody downgrade your effort and contribution. I am here with a great big hug for all of you; because every Power Ranger character has a die-hard fan and that it me ;)
