Extreme weather becoming common everywhere. The massive flood occurred last December, was not mainly caused by monsoon rain, but caused by tropical low pressure, that brought uncommon heavy rain fall. The existence of tropical low pressure was very much related to the Philippines Typhoon Rai that was happening at the same time. This massive flood hit 8 states, caused 54 deaths and 2 missing, financial loss estimated around RM2billion. In the future, disaster causes by extreme weather will be more rampant, it’ll affects everyone in this World.
In the midst of coping with pandemic, with the addition of massive flood, troubles seem to be never end. Usually, when the media and public attention or focus ended, will there be anyone still concern about the critical condition of disaster victims? How about those under privilege children who have been affected by pandemic, who had gone through two redundant years; when our nation’s education system unable to help our children, how can our children receive education? The many “New Norms” in future, will quickly tests our perception on purpose of life, and how does faith affects ones thought and behaviour.
Many people are talking about the coming of metaverse era. This could be resulted from too many suffering in our daily lives, therefore people hope to experience a completely different self, things or lives in another cosmic space. My thought is, if we fail to live a life of truth, kindness and beauty in a realistic world, then the metaverse version is just another fake, surface and shallow Utopia.
Therefore, we can do the following:
Care more for those people living around us,
Be compassionate towards under privilege group,
Do not close your eyes on injustice issues that happened in our society; and
See your responsibilities in others’ need.
Today, I read a phrase on the internet: “There is no such thing as ‘One Particular Incident’ in this world. The society that we live in also do not have ‘One Particular Case’. As long as something happens in our society, then it is a matter of concern for everyone in this society”. You might think that this phrase is too extreme, but it is due to the attitude of self-protecting that brought about many sad tragedies.
Society is a common body;
nobody can exclude from it.
If the place you reside is “dark”, then you’ll be “dark” as well,
If the place you reside is “bright”, then you’ll be “bright” as well,
Let’s together go out and save life.
Light up a lamp in the dark,
Extend your hand to the helpless,
Stand firm and stay watchful at the gap.
If one person cannot accomplish the work, then go in a team, if one team still insufficient, then go in a mass, many hands make light work.
Our 7979 Service arm budget again exceeded 1 million, we need more volunteers and manpower.
We believe unity is power, when united then there is hope!
Can we have the privilege to invite you to walk together with us?
今天，我在网络上读到一句话：“这个世界并不存在什么 ‘个别事件’。我们生活的社会也不存在什么‘个别案例’。只要社会发生任何事情，都是属于这社会的一份子。” 你可能认为这话过于偏激，正因保持明哲保身的态度，社会上才发生许多悲惨险恶的事件。
