May peace be with us…

On the way to Takengon, Ied day 2005, we saw so many children out there with gun toys, almost everywhere in the streets or any visible public places…

In one occassion this conversation was occuredd:

a Child (C): ” I want to be a soldier!…”

Me (M) : “Why?…”

C : “…so that I can protect the weak from the bad people and fight for justice! (half screaming with a self-assured face)”

M :” Ok,… so who are the bad people then?…”

C :” Military people…!”

M :” Military? Do you mean the guerilla?…”

C :” No, the army!…”

M: (speechless)…

M:(thinking)…

…Hope that the legacy of violence and hatred will not become a never ending vicious cycle… never again…

Stop the violence and no more war!
It is E-N-O-U-G-H (sigh)

And…may peace be with us…

I wish…

Aceh, December 28 2005
One year after tsunami….
I felt so sad and broken-hearted each time I went to children center in Aceh after tsunami…
Each of them has their own story…
Each of them has their own sadness…
Each of them has their own sorrow of losing someone…
But, looking at those children’s faces
I also believe that,…
Somehow,…
They also have their own guardian angels …

I hope that their spirit for having better life will never fade away,

I pray for their strength, happiness and better future…
Wishing that the laughter and sun will be back again in their life…
 

This is my wish for them, from the bottom of my heart…
