Malaysia: the National Day

Good Essays
On 31st of August every year, we as Malaysians celebrate the National Day. A lot of people enjoy celebrating the National Day. We enjoy singing the National Songs, decorating our classroom, watching the countdown concert, counting down the time to midnight and watching the parade on National Day. But when we do all those things, do we feel anything or we just celebrate National Day without understanding or feeling anything?? Don’t you at least feel proud being a Malaysian?? At least, we should APPRECIATE living here in Malaysia. There are a lot of reasons why we should.

Based on our topic, the main theme here is APPRECIATING. In general, we as human beings need to learn to appreciate things. We have to remember, the world is not perfect and we cannot get everything like what we wished for. However, we must never say there is nothing good for us in this world. Although the topic here is about appreciating Malaysia, it is important for us to tell ourselves that whoever we are, where ever we are, we must learn how to appreciate things that we have.

We have to remember that everything we have is given to us by God. We should appreciate even the smallest thing that God gave us. Having good health, a happy family, and a peaceful environment. All this things we have to appreciate because God can take it back from us anytime. We should never take for granted of anything that God has given to us. When we learn to appreciate things, we will live happier because we realize that the world is not a bad place after all.

Going back to our topic, “Appreciating Malaysia”, we will realize that how lucky we are to live here in Malaysia. Soon, we will realize that Malaysia is not a bad country after all. We are living with peace and harmony without worrying about any serious problems. We can easily get education, food, water and shelter. And not to forget the technologies that we are using which are the same or even better than other countries around the world. Hand phones,
