Be The Change You Want

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركلته
الحمد لله و الصلاة و السلام على رسولله

1. I'm trying my best to consistently attend Dr. Hussein Khairy's morning lecture and ward round each day. And here comes one of the most important subject, "Fluid & Electrolytes".

2. I try my best to avoid talking or writing about politics now, especially if it's beyond my knowledge, as things (Malaysian politics) have become more complicated than ever.

3. But my mind tells me otherwise. One interesting thing that I got from the "fluid" lesson, can't hardly be avoided from being related to politics.

4. As a matter of fact, 60% of our body weight consists of fluid. Considering an average human being of 70 kg body weight, he will have 42 litres of fluid in his body. From that 42 L, 3.5 Litres of the fluid is in intravascular compartment, which is 5% of body weight. It is quite interesting knowing that out of 42 Litres of total body fluid, only 3.5 Litres that greatly affects our body. Subhanallah...

5. Our main concern in most of the situations (like trauma, shock, hypertensive crisis, etc) lays upon regulating this 3.5 Litres intravascular fluid. We add some more fluids, electrolytes, plasma proteins etc to make sure this 5% of body fluid stable. And in most of the cases, this 3.5 Litres that is causing us problems.

6. Out of 30 millions of Malaysian citizen, only 13 millions voted for the 13th GE. That was more or less 40% of the population. Only 40% of the population who decided the leadership of the country, generally speaking.

7. Most of the time, the national policies are determined by few, maybe tens or hundred of Malaysians in the Parliament. Even bigger decisions for the country are being determined by even lesser number of brains.

8. Remember, that the World War 1 started merely by assasination of an "Archduke", and ended with 9 millions fatalities.

9. The World War 2 was started by few leaderships of few countries, and ended with 75 millions fatalities, which made the WW2 likely the deadliest conflict in human history. It needs only one man to push the "YES" button to change the world. Look at Aghanistan and Iraq. Look at other poor countries.

10. As historians said, "war is started by few, and suffered by many". Indeed, it's not only the war. It applies to pretty much everything.

11. In any community or civilization, only few will decide the future of the rest. Be it the president, prime minister, politicians, the academicians, the scientists, the 'ulama', the artists, whoever they are. The rule is, the few will decide for the many.

12. How many students who participates actively out of a hundred in your classroom? Out of millions of citizens, how many who speaks out for their rights?

13. The question is, can we let this phenomenon to continue? If it is really the rule, should we be the "few" who changes and decides, or the "many" who follows and being changed?

"Be the change you want!"
