Appreciate frontliners’ sacrifices


I AM writing this piece after witnessing a scene at a traffic roadblock while heading to work. Several uniformed personnel, ranging from army to police, were standing at attention while being briefed by an officer at their post.

It didn’t matter which uniform they were wearing, it was obvious that they all had one common objective, which was to maintain a spirit of discipline and attention towards the call of duty and the responsibilities of the task.

This scene reminded me that we all need to count our blessings and appreciate the fact that while some of us can be with our loved ones, there are others who are not so fortunate.

With this in mind, I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to not only our frontliners in their battle against the Covid-19 pandemic but also individuals who have and are placing duty above self in making Malaysia safe.

They are facing an uphill task, and I believe our adherence to Covid-19 SOPs is one way in which we can show gratitude and spur them on in the battle.
