We Need More of These January 25, 2007

Today as I was leaving my apartment for work, I witnessed a fellow apartment neighbor watering the plants in the common lobby area. Immediately after I ask my hubby “Why is she watering the plants?”, I kicked myself mentally.

Why, I thought…these are the people society really needs. People who look beyond themselves and offer a helping hand regardless of creed or color. When I was young, the media preached “Semangat Kejiranan” all day long. What I saw this morning is really Semangat Kejiranan in practice.

To my fellow neighbor, I salute you. I wish everyone could use you as an example and emulate your good deeds.

Now what can I contribute to my society?
