BERSIH 3.0 A Riot?

While waiting in dental clinic yesterday, I had a talk with a mid-age couple. They told me that they went to BERSIH 3.0 assembly earlier to show support. When they asked me if I attended too, I said no. They asked why didn't I go, I did not say anything, I was ashamed to admit that I was afraid.

I broke the silence and asked them what made them joined, they said they were too ignorant and did nothing about the government for too long, for the future of their children they must do something now. I was once again put into silence. 

I am afraid because I know the game too well, we'll have to bleed in order to win. The authority is too afraid of the people so they resolve to violence; while the people are so powerless that their voices will not be heard and their stories will be twisted in favor of the government.

The journey to revolution and reformation will not be safe and peaceful, but I promise I'll not be afraid anymore. Because when the people should not fear their government, the government should fear the people.
