Have a heart

I am deeply touched by the actions of the family members of two accident victims, who despite grieving for their loved ones, had consented to donate the organs of their demised loved ones in the hope of saving more lives.

To me, these are proof that at the human level, their intentions are pure and noble. I am humbled by their gestures, knowing well that it must be one of the most difficult decisions to take at a time of profound personal sadness.

The media which have done much to highlight the plight of Tee Hui Yi recently also deserves a round of applause for raising awareness of the urgent need of those whose lives hang by the thread each day awaiting donor organs to give them a new lease of life.

However, I sense that certain political vultures are circling in the air in the hope of gaining some mileage from this episode.

I hope the media will do their best not to give space to these shameless people lest it turns this issue into something that places unnecessary emphasis on race or religion instead of what it really ought to stand for.

It's just a display of compassion from one human being to another.

That' all there is to it. And that's all that should be read from it.

Human plights are always solved via humanity. It has nothing to do with race, religion or creed.

At every level of humanity, whether in Malaysia, Bosnia, Indonesia, Burma or India, humanity is present in abundance.

The political masters such as Hishamuddin seems to try to work out a political mileage out of this to prove nothing of any sort.

Mave, look at the STAR paper today featuring the shameless MCA president & his wife/machais gathering around Hui Yi's bed in the ICU for a photo-op!

They certainly prove something to all Malaysians, something that make decent folks blush in shame.
