There is a thousand reasons to be pessimistic about the future of Indonesia. But, there is a million ways for changing the pessimism to be the real action for better Indonesia. Believe me, the young generation of Indonesia right now is the gold keys for better civilizations of the world in the years ahead. It is not about the higher education that we can be passed for being the gold generation, but all of this is about how far the education of this country can increase the prosperity of our society. Even though it is not an easy way, but the fights that we face will not be stopped. There must be much courage of us to take the challenges.
Be grateful for the chance of education that has been given to us. Beyond the study that we are learning, there are thousand million hopes of the others who can't attend for study in the college, even in the middle school.
Keep the hopes and spread the goodness.
Happy national education day, Indonesia! May the odds be ever in our nation!
Ps. The picture above is photo session after general lecture about EXOPLANET with Prof. Dr. Bambang Hidayat : Chairman of the Indonesian-Dutch Astronomy Programme, Former Vice-President International Astronomical Union (IAU). He's very inspirational person who has passed many periods since the Dutch colonial era in Indonesia. He also met the Japanese colonial regime in Indonesia till finally Indonesia gained its independence. Now, entered the age of 80's he is still full of spirit. I am truly inspired by him. May God bless you, Prof.
