Malaysia is not a failed state; it has more than its fair share of blessings
ACHILD’s huge grin is always a welcome sight and very contagious. This chirpy-looking boy seen walking with his dad recently had exactly that effect. One could sense that he was really proud about something.
It was not because he did well in his examination, or reached the finish line first in a race. He had just left the National Registration Department (NRD) with his dad after collecting his new identification card (MyKad).
His father shared that his 12year-old son was over the moon after he received a letter from the NRD, informing him that his MyKad was ready for collection.
“Since then, my son has been hounding me, urging me to take him to the registration department. My son said getting his MyKad for the first time has finally made him an adult,” said the proud father.
As some children in other countries dodge bullets while on their way to school, our children can do so without worrying about their safety.
