But I really do have my fears.
My fear is that our country would lose its democracy and its freedom, overrun by corruption, extremism, and bigotry and continue being burdened by self-serving public servants who have no principles but claim that their actions are in the name of national interests.
My fear is not being able to prevent any further erosion of what limited freedom of speech, action, thoughts or worship we have.
My fear is being unable to live up to the name of being a proud Malaysian, daring to stand and fight for her sovereignty.
My fear is being slowly but subtly being told I don't belong here anymore, that I can leave if I don't like it.
My fear is not being able to vote for whom I believe to best represent me in government.
And my fear is they'll come after me if I dare speak up.
But my worst fear is if I don't speak up now, there won't be another Rocky or Screenshots to speak up for me and my fellow citizens, just as Martin Niemöller feared, there won't be anyone left to speak up.
