Hari Pahlawan “Semangat Pahlawan di Dadaku”
“Bangsa yang besar adalah bangsa yang menghargai para pahlawannya.” – Bung Karno
The patriotic event which took place in Surabaya on November 10, 1945 was one of the many great stories of the brave Indonesians’ struggle to defend independence. We must pray and be thankful for their services. That’s why we need celebrate National Heroes’ Day every November 10th as this is a reminder of their heroism.
The nature and characteristics of a person said to be a hero are honest, courageous, and willing to do anything for the good. With the theme “Semangat Pahlawan di Dadaku”, being a hero should not only be on November 10, but should be every day of our lives. Every day we should fight at least to become heroes for ourselves, family, and friends.
“Don’t stop because if you stop we will be left behind. Don’t be weak, because weakness will cause defeat,” said one of Indonesia’s Veterans. With the passion still burning, the Indonesian veterans shouted “Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka!”. We are inspired by their eternal spirit. We are inspired by their fight for Indonesia. We are proud, we are Indonesia.
