a week to mourn: soeharto wafat


innalillahi wa inna ilaihi roji'un

soeharto wafat. minggu siang kemarin jam 13.10 wib d rs pertamina. i guess, it's been a long waited-anticipated-and-hoped thing to happen. mereka sudah tahu. keluarganya. klo hal ini akan terjadi. dan saya rasa begitu juga kita semua. walopun tiap hari tim dokter bilang keadaannya membaik, tapi, i don't know, i had a hunch that it was his last time to be hospitalized.

it was a sad thing. to lose a general. a hero. a father. someone meant huge to you. to me. iya, meskipun dia dihujat sana-sini sy tetep melihatdia sebagai seorang yg guede banget jasanya untuk republik ini. despite all the mistakes he made, he was just a mortal. and mortals make mistakes, tinggal bgmn dia bersikap terhadap kesalahan yg dia perbuat. dia nyesel gak? ngaku salah gak? minta maaf gak? ato malah tambah bikin kesalahan lagi.
well, menurut sy, he had a big heart. itu makanya dia mundur sebagai presiden tahun 1998 lalu.

dan klo losing someone is very sad. mnurut sy yg lebih menyedihkan lagi adalah ketika someone we love and we care about is losing someone and we can do nothing to erase that sorrow and sadness. or at least to lift the burden a bit off his or her shoulder. it's sooo sad.

just like today. ketika salah seorang sodaraku kehilangan ayahnya dalam waktu yg sangat cepat dan mendadak. dan membuat dunianya runtuh dan gelap. yg bisa sy lakukan cuma pay condolences. nothing more. when i want to hold her. telling her it would be okay. because i know how hard she feels. i don't want her to feel the way i've felt before when i lost my loved ones.


sy tidak tahu doa apa yg harus sy lafalkan untuk mereka yg sudah pergi dan untuk mereka yg diitnggalkan. satu hal, sy berharap bahwa semuanya, pada akhirnya, akan baik-baik saja.
