A piece which I wrote earlier but did not post it up ( the camera was not in my possession) . My prayers were answered. Now, I have decided to post it for your pleasure reading but, the calls for the abolishment of ISA should be continued…

I was with some members after attending three lantern festival gathering and a funeral ceremony. We started asking, why Teresa? What wrong has she done? These questions were asked too when we heard about the news of the arrest of Sin Chew reporter, Tan Hoo Cheng.
