Today I Weep for Thee

In the midst of a joyful Christmas shopping spree, I was petrified to hear the arrest of my legal colleagues.

Today I see those familiar faces in horror.

Today I see the misuse of law as a weapon against the legal activists.

Today I see the fall of justice, civil liberty and the rule of law.

Today I see the terrifying prospect of a totalitarian state creeping onto this land.

Not for Monday blues, but today I weep for the dying democracy of this country, and I see her sky tearing for thee too...

P/s: Is this the land where we can still live a life to the fullest?
