Yes, the night is still young

Proud to be a (put-your-country-name-here) Citizen?

Talking to a friend from foreign land, we were discussing about the quality of life in the place where we live.

He said that he were lucky, to win a lottery of life ticket and born in one of the most comfortable land on the Earth, where even though he has to pay high taxes, he could get a job, earn enough money to afford a good life for his entire family. Don’t worry about education as they only need to prepare for living cost, and not educational cost. And when they need to go to hospital, they don’t have to pay anything because every citizen has medical insurance fund from the taxes. What the hospital wish to do is to cure and make them recover, and get them out of the hospital as soon as possible, so the hospital doesn’t have to spare more burden cost.

So I ask him again, do you proud to be a citizen of your country? he replied: “well I just happy and thank God I was born there”.

Nice point of view, or you just see me getting jealous 🙂

  2. Indeed its so true, thanks to Indonesia for the challenge and the survival lesson
    Yet, what a sad thing to remember those who didn’t make it, those who try and failed and forgotten, to see faces of failed heroes everywhere around the country.
    If only Indonesia also have some places for them the recover, rebuild, and strengthen their hope and strength.
