Ignorance is Not Bliss




Apparently, there are a lot of people who don’t take signage seriously. Or they tend to think that, “Nevermind laaa.. surely someone will clean up. So what if I litter? No big deal.”

And we, the proud students of SSS who had learned so much about the responsibilities of being citizens of Negara Brunei Darussalam, worked hand-in-hand last Sunday together with UBD/ITB students to clean up Jerudong beach!

We found glass bottles, car tyres, styrofoam packets, plastic spoons and forks lying around the area and it was quite dangerous to walk around bare-foot because you might get cut by those objects anytime.

For those litterbugs out there, have you ever thought that the rubbish you left behind might put someone else’s life at risk? Sure, you don’t care because it has nothing to do with you. But what if that person is someone you love and care? Would you feel the same now? Worse, his/her injuries is caused by your ignorance. Hah. How about that?

Maybe our efforts wouldn’t last long because ignorant and/or irresponsible people will continue to litter our beautiful piece of land but at least we tried and it did feel good doing so.

Love your country.
Do something for your country even if you feel it’s minimal.
