The Passing

At 13:30 pm, January 27th, 2008. What did you do?

I was lying down on my couch with Hanif, he played some mobile game, I read a back-issue of New Woman. Aca was just starting to work on his Kumon, while his dad and sister were hovering about.

On the other side of Jakarta, Soeharto, our former president passed away at that time. Farewell, Sir. We might not be able to forget and forgive the repressions, the corruption legacy you left behind, but surely there are ten-thousands or more Indonesians who have something good to say about you. Hopefully those kind words will bring you peace and lead you to God's forgiveness.
