Optimus Prime - My Kind of Hero

Sticking to "late bloomer" motto, i only watched "Transformers - The Movie" early this year. I have one question to ask you though - is it permissible to cry while watching this movie? Somehow, i did - courtesy of "Optimus Prime".

The following is extracted from Wikipedia: -

"Optimus Prime is a character in the Transformers universe. He is the commander of the Autobots, a faction of heroic Transformers from the planet Cybertron who wage their battles against the evil forces of the Decepticons for control of their homeworld, and by extension, peace in the universe.

Optimus Prime is depicted as a heroic, brave and compassionate character who puts all his talent to use to improve the world around him. Optimus has a strong sense of justice and righteousness, and has dedicated himself to the protection of all life, particularly the inhabitants of Earth; he will battle his foes with unyielding resolve to uphold this belief. He always seems to wear a mask over his mouth.

Contained within his chest is the mystic talisman known as the Autobot Matrix of Leadership (or Creation Matrix, depending on the continuity), carried by all Autobot leaders and passed down through the ages".

I thought of PR's bloggers and many unnamed unsung heroes who fight for this Ibu Pertiwi - they are my Optimus Prime. Is it worth their time to fight for us when draconian ISA and Police F(a)rce (more of bullies i'd say - they even rhyme!) brutality linger around? Why would they do all these for us? My God, I am truly blessed. Please God, please protects them - always.

p.s. Above all, this is a tribute to my Optimus Prime (you know who you are) - a master of disguise, a heart of gold, a razor sharp mind and a crusader for all...
