Bantar Gebang, June 2012

I found this letter when I cleaned my house. 3 years ago, I wrote it, after I had the immersion experiment in Bantar Gebang Final Place of Garbage (Tempat Pembuangan Akhir Bantar Gebang). Our experiment was meaningful and unforgettable. We felt becoming a part of “pemulung” family. I do love our family there, Pak Denin and family. So, for me the money, and all of “world’s stuff” will be nothing if we do not "share" it to others.   
Here was my reflection, during those 4 days, imagining I wrote this letters to God.

Giving, sharing, even when we don’t have anything. That’s the purposes of our lives.

I remember when I was in Norway for ISFIT, then one night in Cultural Day, the questions was about Women Day, and Karla, our friend from Peru answered this correctly, at the end we almost became a winner. Viva Ladies!
And how about in Indonesia? We marked this day as a special day for all of us, not only for women but also for all of Indonesian citizens. “Kartini Day”, April 21, National Women Day of Indonesia. This year, I and kak Tanty composed tweets on Sabang Merauke twitter. This is our reflection, representing Sabang Merauke (Seribu Anak Bangsa Merantau Untuk Kembali):
Setiap tanggal 21 April tentu kita ingat sosok pejuang perempuan, harapan akan kebangkitan perempuan Indonesia pd waktu silam. Ya, Kartini. Tiap tahun kita rayakan hari bersejarah ini, lagu utk mengenang Ibu Kartini kita lantunkan, perempuan Indonesia mera…
