Since election fever is fast approaching, here are some quotes i think we should consider... :)
--- Instead of wasting time and effort destroying each other's relationships as schoolmates, as members of the community and as citizens of this nation, why don't we just take time and reflect what ways we can truly extend help and improve the society and the community we are living in. Clear your minds from all the personal motives and start having a good, clean, decent and professional campaign and election. Indeed, there are few who are hooked with all the sugar-coated promises, but the majority is intelligent and wise. :-)
