Right & Wrong (opinion)

As a child we have been told by our parents about what is right and what is not. Some people use the harsh way and some would prefer the Gandhi (no violence) way to educate their children for the better of them. So which is the best way?

As a teenager we've seen, experience and feel the world more than we used to. We were told that we are now responsible for our act. We see people and wanting to follow their footsteps, but which step is the right step?

As we grow older, we now know the fact that we are responsible for everything. We make decisions, we take opinions, but which is heaven and which is hell? we don't know.

(my opinion)
We are here to try our best in doing what we think is right. Kurt Westergaard (Danish cartoonist who drew bloody Islamic cartoon) is drawing what he think is democracy. The Americans and Zionists were attacking what they think is righteous to kill. Our friends is telling us what to do for what they think is helpful, so does our teachers and parents.

The facts were these (Pushing Daisies' tag line), even though we are blessed with logic and reasons, sometimes(tq alia) we are still unable to determine what is truly right and what is truly wrong. What we consider heaven now may not be paradise tomorrow and what we think is hell today may not be punishment the day after.

Only God (in our case, Muslims: Allah S.W.T) knows what is truly right for us. Many or maybe all of the things that were mentioned to us by other humans (parents, teachers, friends, etc) that seemed to be truthfully right may came from Allah S.W.T from his Holy Book (Al-Quran). For an example, our parents remind us not to pick on flowers and destroy trees; this is also what Allah S.W.T has told us to do, so it is truly right. So, to conclude it is best for us to return to our creator, Allah S.W.T when we seem to lost our path because I believe that He will help and show us the right way if we want to.

p/s: this entry is mostly my opinion. Any wrong information, discussion, correction are welcomed in a nice way ya! peace.

Why Clint Eastwood is my hero.

Clint Eastwood is a name everyone who love movies would know. He's famous for his act as a tough and rough character in the movie Dirty Harry series and classic western epic (The Good, The Bad, The Ugly).

The first movie I remember watching that involves him is "Mystic River" (Sean Penn, Tim Robins, Laurence Fishbourne, Kevin Bacon) which make Sean Penn won his first Oscar for best actor and Tim Robbins for best supporting actor.

Then I've watch his other movies (dun remeember what). But what makes him a hero to me is the movie The Unforgiven 1992 (Clint Eastwood, Samuel L. Jackson, Gene Hackman) which he directed earning Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Supporting Actor (Gene Hackman).

What I love the most about this movie (The Unforgiven) is the sound track "Claudia's Theme" which he composed himself. He also composed many other sound track for his movie such as form the movie "Mystic River" and "Gran Torino".

He own his production company Malpaso Production form his movies and his own recording company Malpaso Records to record sound tracks of the movie, which he'd compose most of it himself.
Another cool fact about him is that he's once involved in politics that he became the mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.
All in all I love Clint Eastwood because he can be a director, screenwriter, actor, composer and even a mayor (ling-app students, analyze this sentence). He's won lots of awards including Academy Awards for Best Director and Best Picture (The Unforgiven, Million Dollar Baby), Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award, Golden Globe Awards for Cecil B. DeMille Award, Best Director (Bird, The Unforgiven,Million Dollar Baby, etc. In terms of success, he's my idol.

Oppression is Salvation..

For years the Jews have been oppressed by the German's Nazi under Adolf Hitler, look at the Jews now, they've become better every single second (media, military, world power, etc).

For decades women have been oppressed as the weaker sex all over the world, look at them now as more and more women enters the IPTA in Malaysia leaving the men behind. Women also have better grades than the men in majority.

(I did wonder if men were really or literally getting extinct and that more women were born on earth today than men. I think the answer is no, because all the men have gone to fields that were not academic, for example sports and mechanics stuff.)

The best literary work came from those who are being oppressed (works of war, prejudice, etc) as from the works of those who experience or seen oppression (Charles Dickens, Langston Hughes, Rabindranath Tagore).
The best men also came from those who were been oppressed, such as Malcolm-X, Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and even Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin. (Both Hitler and Stalin were abused by their fathers in their childhood and look what they've turn out to be).
Thus from these observation I may conlcude that those who have seen, experience, gone through hardships, suffering and humiliation, oppression, tortured, etc are the ones who will be the best. "What doesn't kill you only get you stronger" I believe.
Don't feel bad if you're humiliated, not cool enough, bullied, ragged, etc because you'll turn out to be a great person. You just need to be strong and endure it. Don't feel sad if you don't look handsome or beautiful enough to be attractive to the society because you're going to be stronger, even just don't feel inferior about your physic or mental state. Just don't give a damn..ahah.
"Little People Kill People" Joey Jordison..

All successful people have gone through many hardships and challenges that you can never imagine of. To be successful is to be difficult.

p/s: our Prophet Muhammad S.A.W and other Prophets have endured much to have the words of Allah S.W.T being spread throughout the world until this day. Think about that.
