Asian Tsunami Disaster

A Solemn Christmas Carol

Christmas we celebrate with peers
Calamity they suffer with tears
Lingering carol we sing
But what they hear is the malady of the dying

May Christmas spirit voyages through all lands
For us to lend our hands
So it can be strengthen
That we all are brethren

No matter how big the tides
God bless you all my friends

    Bangsa Indonesia Kini Bangsa Pengeluh?!

    Sebetulnya bukan sesuatu yang baru jika kita menjumpai saudara sebangsa –atau bahkan mungkin kita sendiri– merasa minder atau inferior jika berhadapan dengan bangsa asing. Entah itu berhadapan tatap muka, diplomasi politik, atau bahkan antar tatanan sosial. Sering pula kita dengar atau baca sitiran saudara sebangsa betapa corat-marut nya Indonesia ini, bahkan tak ayal sampai terlepas dari proporsi dan kian merendahkan bangsa sendiri sambil mengagungkan bangsa lain.
