I told you before that we are living history, or rather, a watershed moment in the country’s political landscape. Today, the headlines of the Star spells out the noun that refuses to leave my mind since Saturday: DRAMA. Stock markets across the region plunges down, crude oil price reaches USD141 per barrel but the politicians in my country are still wrestling for power worse than the Claudius of Hamlet!
I hate to point out the obvious, but they seem to forget that political stability goes hand in hand with economic enhancement. I am all for justice to the abused and punishment to the villain, but please, be done with the drama, be done with the sex scandal, and be done with the street rally: just get to work.
I see not the beacon of hope at the end of the horizon. Tell me, how do I instill moral and political values to my child? I’ll be back with the creative writing piece shortly.
