May the thousand-years-old traditions of honoring familial ties, celebrating joy among brothers and sisters, and praying for the prosperity of each other trump all adversities and obstacles we might face in the days to come.
Happy Chinese New Year to all of you. Gong Xi Fa Cai.
In life, sometimes we win and other times we lose and learn. But what’s important is that we live to fight another day.
– Somebody from Some War in The Past…
For most of us, a new day in a new year won’t bring about big changes or miraculous turnarounds. But it surely reminds us that we have passed yet another milestone in our short lives. It tells us that we have fought well and we endured thus far. And that we will go on.
And surely ye’ll be your pint stoup!
And surely I’ll be mine!
And we’ll tak a cup of kindness yet
for auld lang syne…
– From a song that you know but never thought of it to be Scottish…
Para pendahulu kita mengerti untuk bisa merdeka dari penjajahan, Indonesia harus bersatu. Perbedaan bukanlah penghambat, tetapi katalis pemersatu bangsa. 92 tahun kita memelihara semangat ini, jangan sampai semangat ini luntur pada saat sedang dikawal oleh generasi kita.
The value of identity, of course, is that so often with it comes purpose.
Heritage is part of our identity. But it doesn’t stop there. What will really define us is the hard choices we make in the worst of times.
In a day as taxing as today, where everyone is on the edge, we can often see our true self and the true selves of people around us. Do we exhibit hope or despair, strength or defeat, life or disappointment?
As the new year begins, let us pray that it will be a year of peace, delight, and health. And that on the path there, in any trials may we be strengthened, in tribulations redeemed, and in sorrows gladdened.
