As you know yesterday was Indonesia's Independence day. Our people wore something red and white definitely to honor it, consider our flag's colors are red and white. And it becomes out tradition or our dresscode for that day.
Talking about Indonesia, actually this is so complicated. Indonesia has the most complicated government and bureaucracy i've ever seen (i don't know what about other country,but just look it by yourself). Corruption. Criminalism. Deception. Poverty. Ignorance. Illness. There are only few problems that our country faces every second, every minute, every hour, every day, and every time. Well, i think other country also face those problems too, but as developing country those are complex problems that not easy to solve it. Even, our country is facing the hottest issues, like Racism and Religionism. If I'm an Indonesia country, i think i must be dead right now. Having those issues just like have serious ill.
Underestimate, mocking, and insulting the country become so normal to do. Whereas our country needs to be supported.
People are easy to see flaws than goodness in it. I think, Indonesia also has many positive things. You know, Indonesians are famous with their kindness and friendly attitude. And it's true. Many tourists admit itself. Also the tourism places in Indonesia. Indonesia's beaches, Indonesia's mountains, Indonesia's forests, and Indonesia's seas are very famous with their beautifulness, exotic animals and florals, even the panorama views are amazing. Like in Bali (no doubt), Lombok, Papua, Java, Borneo, and Sulawesi even the complicated city in Indonesia, Jakarta has its charm in tourists eyes.
Beside that, many achievement which Indonesia already got in many aspects like academics, sports, and fashion. In fashion, yup, you know the famous fabric in Indonesia, Batik. Batik and weaving fabrics from Lombok already goes global. They become our heritage. Global designer like Dries van Noten already used it in his collection. Not only the fabrics, even the fashion people starts to be noticed globally. Fashion designers and even bloggers.
So, as young generation we have to be a good civilian even we can improve our country with our ability and our own talents, instead of mocking or insulting the government or the country. :) Enough talking, just wanna say Congratulation Indonesia and Happy 68th Anniversary.
