Four years old philanthropist and a boy beaten to death

This might be an old story. It about a four years old philanthropist named Su-Sze who has contributed a massive RM33, 195.36 to the United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef) by selling postcards. Wow! Even I didn’t contribute so many amounts in my entire 27 years old life. I wonder whether she aware how much money did she gave out and if she will regret it or not in future. I hope she will not because it an act of good will. Thank God!

"Su-Sze is also the youngest record holder in the Malaysia Book of Records for “The Longest Distance Swimming by a Toddler” and has received a Special Award from the Prime Minister as a Young Achiever."

I myself never even know how to swim and she already has a record in Malaysia Books of Records. Su-Sze is a most inspirational story for me. On this young tender age, she has done lots of things and contribution so many things to society especially to children. It is not a story that we heard and read every day. I do believe, as an adult we can learn much more about doing a welfare jobs from young children than seeing reach businessman, superstar or politician.

Any yet, all this things happen due to the encouragement of her parent too. I cannot ignore this actual fact. Kids never know what to do unless his or her parents teach and told them to do. Sometime, parent is the main influences factor to a child development weather he or she going to be a person who can give a large contribution to society or become a terrorist tend to bombing and killing people all over the places.

Again, there is a report about 14 years old boys was beaten death by classmate. A Form Two student has died after a punch-up with a classmate in their class at SM St Anthony here. Goh Zi How, 14, was rushed to the Labuan Nucleus Hospital at around 11am yesterday but died at about 1.50pm.
“It is believed that the fight was triggered off by a misunderstanding between Goh, who was sitting in the second row of the classroom, and the other student, who was seated behind him. The two traded blows for several minutes following a brief argument, and their classmates attempting in vain to pull them apart. The fight stopped when Goh collapsed.”

School has turn to be violent places for our youngster. Fighting that cause death or injured, and then to shooting incident that resulted kills peers and teacher. How are we going to send our kids to school anymore if this thing keep coming and haunted our kids. I wonder what these kids learn at home a school today others than basic education. Do they get to learn an adequate knowledge about respecting others life, morality that not to conclude violence as a first option solution.

This might be trigger alarm for us to rethink about the definition of education in school. Although we heard a lots of government policies about improving the level and standard of public education, it is useless if the teacher fail it’s responsible to communicating and presenting it into the mind of our youngsters. I’m not saying all the teacher fail to do their job, but there are many incidents happened in schools. We cannot blame the parent that put their children on private schools over public schools over the consideration of their well being.

As time goes on, living the life become harder and harder to adult and the children. Morality issue is important things that need to be brought to attention so the violence and evil brought by the waves of information technology can be countered. We need to see more kids like Su-Sze who was brought up in such good environment and exposed in welfare work by her parent. Why it so hard to do this in primary public schools or maybe child day centers. One might say it’s hard to teach children to be good and tolerance as they too young in mind and they’re not aware about anything. We need to see less case of death students in schools killed by guns or beating to death, and yet we still can see kids below age 10 kill his or her young friends in the act of jealousy or imitating from television.
