First of all, we would like to congratulate the Malaysian Olympic Delegation for their best performance ever at the Olympic Games!
We are extremely proud of the fighting spirit that was shown by our Olympians, that had fought tooth and nail to secure medals for the country. The lesson in all this is that we should never give up, even in the face of defeat, we should always strive to be the best, and try our best. Of course, a gold medal would be that much sweeter, but in our eyes, our Olympians are heroes. We are proud to be associated with the Olympics delegation through our small contribution of Denguard Plus Anti-Dengue Lotion to protect our Olympians against the Aedes mosquitoes, and we hope that all is well with everyone that went to Rio for the games.
We like to think heroes are those whose names appears in the newspapers. But little did we know that we all can be heroes in our lives. Even the smallest act such as disposing garbage at the proper receptacle can be considered a heroic act if we think about it.
I remember when I was a young lad, watching the program Rescue 911 on the television. I remember feeling at awe at the bravery of the rescue workers to save lives. However, no matter how dramatic we think that heroes have to be, saving lives and being a hero does not mean necessarily that we have to put ourselves in immediate danger.
Take dengue prevention for instance. If we all can work together, to put our hearts and minds into keeping our neighborhood clean, we are preventing Aedes from taking hold, and thus saving an untold number of lives from being taken away by these creatures. Of course, it doesn’t have the same appeal as the drama unfolding on the television, but this does not mean that it is any less heroic in my eyes.
So, we must remember, even in a small way, everyone can be a hero. All it takes is the will to do what is right, for the benefit of all.
