My Essay

Don’t forget the past, learn from it. 

In this modern world to some people, studying history has little value and meaning. Indeed, the sad truth, because its very difficult to stay idealist about the past or historical matter nowdays.

In Indonesia, there is a proveb tell that “JASMERAH – Jangan Melupakan Sejarah”, it means dont forget about history. But I rather said – never forget about history, because it makes us who we are and part of gratitude for people who made great stories in the past, so that we can appreciate the living.

The lesson from history in the past remain important causes, like we can learn how to ensure that we never repeat the same mistakes, we can develope any further information from the previous event, create something innovative by gathering some information from the past, and the most important from learning history is lead us or help us to be better and influence our future on the right path.

So, if young generations are not taught about this values, they will not give any inspirations to teach them to make an actions in their lives. And because every story that ever made can have a huge impact on the future and young generations still need it.

One of the ways to motivated the young generations is to learn from school, or by an some activities. Although it sounds like they forced to do so, but I think it will be a trigger to acknowledge and liking the history, at least they gain some knowledge from it.

Moreover, not every history are boring, such as hearing the stories directly from people who experience it. Personally, it would be so much fun.

I remember how my Grandmother told a stories about her life in a war zone back then. How the real situation she has faced, from the miserable to the funiest story that can makes me cry into tears and burst into laugh. The important thing is, what the lesson and the values she gave me from her story. It was so precious moment and I would like to shared those stories to my child, even my grandchilds either – someday.

Theodore Roosevelt said, “The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future”.

Thats why, do not forget about the past, never ever forget about it, because when we learn from it, it becomes the future.

Well actually, I wrote an eassy about history for the kids for my task back then. So I thought, why not if I shared it on my personal blog, with editing in some parts. Once again, sorry for the mistaken English. Enjoy.

Penerapan IQ, EQ, dan SQ dalam dunia pendidikan

Dunia pendidikan menurut saya merupakan dunia yang sangat menarik untuk dipelajari, karena pendidikan merupakan dasar dari segala tingkah laku individu dan pembentuk karakter individu dalam aspek kehidupannya. Proses merupakan kunci utama pendidikan yang nantinya menghasilkan suatu ilmu.

Sex Education Di Sekolah

Indonesia merupakan negara yang kental akan unsur kebudayaan dan adat ketimuran yang dikenal sangat ramah dan santun. Berbeda dengan dunia Barat yang merupakan negara liberal dan open minded serta dikenal dengan budaya yang terbuka. Dari gambaran umum tersebut, terlihat jelas perbedaan cara pandang antara Barat dan Timur. Orang barat yang dengan mudah menerima keterbukaan dan modernitas, sedangkan dunia Timur sulit untuk menerima hal-hal “keterbukaan” seperti orang Barat pikir. Hal ini-lah yang membuat Sex Education dianggap tabu oleh orang budaya Timur termasuk Indonesia. Mengapa tabu?
