Even though I only to Europe one time, but I always love the place. I was there after winter so that the temperature still so much cool compare to tropical countries but not blazzing freeze. I like so many beautiful buildings and exotic scenary there. Most of the people also so kind. However, like any part of the world we will meet people that seems unfriendly. I love the Amsterdam Canal so much and raised thousends of curiosities why we cannot maintain our public facilities as clean and as tidy that European countries?
We are living in paradox country. Where we are proud to be country with the biggest muslim population in the world but at the same time the corruption level also very high. We are rich by natural resources but we are not earn any income from those because most of valuable things are maintained by foreign country.
I wanna say burn so hard whem hearing, reading, watching many ridiculuous news about the country. Incapable person that is assigned to be an ambassador in advance country, again about corruptions that has been rooted so much, anachist behaviour of most people, etc etc etc. When go back to the country we will face many rdiculous behaviour directly. Stupid people that smoke anywhere. Undiscipline people on the road. Back to some speak about religion, religion is nothing if only applied at the level pf self labelling and empty routinity in shallow worship. The worst things from all of those pathethic condition of our country is, I even haven't do anything yet to make it better.
There several things that we can do start from small thing. Be an agent while we are living abroad. Be an effective worker or brilliant student that capable maintain of high quality of work with full of discipline. So that if someone start to wonder about ua we can bring positive assestment for our identity. Who is that genius guy? Wow and Indonesian man. Oh a moslem that very disipline. Who is the smart woman? Oh scholarship student from Indonesia. She just present a nice conference paper in Sweden. Another step to be a super agent is inventing an awesome thing. Write a good book. Even if just a novel. Develop awesome opensource software. Etc. Indeed, I haven't do so much about these but I know we have to start even if it small.
However there is also super important thing to do to restore our country and muslim identity intp better level. Educate the next generation with best education in all aspects. The most important is teaching about the religion itself and complement with teach and give example of proper self development so that our childrend and grand children will growth as a good character generations. After self development then we should influence them about the excitement about learning. Teach the children to be always thirsty in searching the knowledge so that beside proper charachter our next gwneration descendant also could be a super brilliant generation that have power in knowledge, science and technology. Onw time I read about how Israeli family raise their children. They prepare all the stuff with full of care. So no wonder, even though in total they are so small but Jews people can handle many most important roles in the world.
Anyway, I wonder with myself how come the first paragraph story about European dream became little bit heavy essay? Like meme said, that escalated quickly!
Hopefully and we have to prepare ourself to give best education to our children in all aspects of their life.
PS: I love you
