ABC Wednesday - 'O' is for Outstanding Leader

Today I had the opportunity to see our former Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad (the man standing in the middle) at the "Expose War Crimes - Criminalise War" International Conference & Exhibition.

I was so glad because his leadership quality is something that I admire. He is not only visionary but also outspoken internationally. He stood up and spoke up on international issues that he disagrees upon, against the stands made by leaders of countries considered superpower of the world like US and British. Dr. M continues to be outspoken even after his retirement. He expresses his thoughts through
his blog that is widely followed by fellow Malaysians.

ABC Wednesday returns with the theme 'O' this week. Find out what others are posting for this week's theme.

Too many politicians are mediocre and have no convictions apart from the need to advance themselves. The ones that are visionary and outspoken for justice and equality are few indeed.

He sure is outstanding and outspoken.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
