“Indonesia….. tanah air beta, disana… tempat lahir beta, dibuai dibesarkan bunda, tempat berlindung di hari tua, tempat akhir menutup mata”
[translated : Indonesia is my motherland, out there, I was born, enjoy my childhood and growth with my Mom, a place where I will come back in my old days, the final place where I will close my eyes forever]
Today, Monday 17 th August 2009 is the 64th anniversary of my Indonesia. 64 years, ago our founding fathers declare our independence day. I know uncountable tears, bloods, properties, and souls have been scarified for this Independece day. Today, I Just remember and pray for them, celebrating our independence day happily. I know most of our founding father strugling for this independence can not enjoy can not enjoy the fresh water of independence.
Indonesia, I know you are not developed country such as USA, UK, Dutch, or Japan. Indonesia, I know most of your people life in poverty. Indonesia, I know sometime world underestimate you. Indonesia, I know, even your own people claimed you as 1001 disaster land. But, whatever happen to you, now and ever I can not stop loving you. I proud to be Indonesian.
