In the Sunday papers today -
They found a new born baby in a plastic bag in a LRT station. The LRT station is Kuala Lumpur's equivalent of the tube or subway station.
10 people killed by a dozing bus driver
2 private clinics linked to a syndicate selling babies
BUT THE MOST HORRIFIC STORY is -
The body of the girl found floating in a flood retention pond in Kampung Boyan, Jalan Semarak.
She was only nine years old and she was raped and murdered in the most brutal way. Her private parts were stuffed with 'various objects'. She makes case number 5.
Cases before her were Nurin Jazlin Jazimin, Nurul Huda Abdul Ghani, Sharlinie Mohd Nashar and Haserawati Saridi, have all been children who suffered the same fate.
The killer(s) are still at large.
How does one live long enough to deserve such a fate? Either as the victims or parents of the victims?
Is it really KARMA?
Is it the media or the society's fault in general?
Is it really so easy for one to mutate and become a monster in one lifetime?
As I write this, I am shaking with deep sadness.
Today it is someone else's child but tomorrow, it could very well be me or my own child.
There are monsters living amongst us, and inside of us.
All hiding behind the mask of humanity, normality and apathy.
The pain and suffering will not end until something is done.
And something seriously needs to be addressed and dealt with.
What becomes a monster is the very same thing as what makes a monster.
How far will we continue to watch in silence, and reside in numbness?
I say it again and again -
Peace, Harmony and Unity - within us or outside of us - is not someone else's job, task or responsibility.
It is not someone else's problems and they have to deal with it while we look away.
Peace, Harmony and Unity belong to all of us, each of us. It belongs to the world.
Hence, we all have a stake in it and we each hold our own responsibility in upholding it.
Now is the time to come together and stand together.
We have to be there for one another and NOT wait until the body count goes up.
This is NOT a numbers' game.
This is life and the future of our children.
What will become the real fate of our species called, the human race?
