A Video to the Leader of My Country – 30 Day Writing Challenge#4

 

I choose to make my own rules about the 30 day writing challenge, because I am a bit moody. LOL. So I choose topics randomly rather than in order.

This time I choose a letter to the leader of my country but instead of making it in writing, I did a video on my youtube channel!

Yesterday, we just had the Jakarta regional election, and it’s been overwhelming. I don’t have right to vote to participate in the election as I am not a Jakarta resident. But this is the first time an election gives me hopes and heartbreak. I really believe in this media darling-to-hate, Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, he has the principles that I believe in. So, when the result stated that he didn’t win, I felt a great disappointment too.

If you’re Indonesian, you must know that Indonesia is now divided into two, pro-Ahok and pro-Muslim. No matter how much they deny it’s about religion, it’s about religion and using religion and race as the main weapons.

Anyway, we should all take the result, it happened already. You cant force to change it. I still hope the elected governor and vice governor of Jakarta can be much better than Ahok, because they have to. No regression is tolerated. Make people who believe in you proud, and make us who look down on you bow!
