KUCHING: Sarawakians continue to wish for a more prosperous future and the desire for higher level of progress is acutely keenly felt this day as the state’s independence is being celebrated.
By and large they now see the state’s direction and vision, especially having managed to come out rather well from the COVID-19 pandemic.
There are great expectations in the hearts of people throughout Sarawak as more development projects are being planned and implemented despite various kinds of setbacks and shortcomings.
People know that times are tough, but they keep going, and it’s good to notice that they have not been rendered bitter and resentful by the adversities brought about by the pandemic and other problems.
On the whole, the youth and older folks are quite positive, and regarding this day – Sarawak Day – most people carry positive attitudes, looking forward to better days ahead.

I have been teaching for a while now, specifically special needs children, and I hope to see more teachers and educators rise to be intentional in their teaching and love genuinely. I understand it may be difficult with the lack of resources and training, but we can do better and it starts with the teachers themselves. Happy Sarawak Day!
