I'm a Student of Sanata Dharma University of Jogjakarta, studying English Education, and i'm sort of touched, reading how the people from all over
the world are worried about the Jogja....
I can't really give anything new, since it's all been posted on the news, my news and yours...
but yeah, i can confirm that the number of death has touched 6400, due to the medical treatments that werent able to be fully delivered to the massive
number of quake victims treated.... and then there are the suicides....... as far as i can gather, about 1000 died in hospitals.....
I wanna thank all the countries out there for having sent in the aids, even in the dangerous period of an imminent volvanic eruption....
We keep hear about help trickling in, but there are still places that haven't received any aid..... but NGOs are slowly making their way there. I
just hope they don't arrive too late.
crimes abound, and people turn barbaric. killing a possible thief on the spot, even burning or burying them alive....
It's a hard time for the Middle Java People.
I do what I can, helping out as an interpreter to the foreign medicals.... not easy since i dunno anything about medicine...... and since i dun
understand the 'high level' java language (Jawa Kromo), I couldn't communicate with the people well...
Very DISTURBED at how people tend to take this into the religious perspective... It was the same with the ACEH's Tsunami... It's a catastrophe, and
that's it. Please leave God out of this... He might be involved, or He might not. What matters is what we do after the catastrophe. Do we help, or do
we breed more hate and conflict?
(and puh-lease. My God beat your God? There is only ONE God.)
VERY VERY VERY ANGRY at Hawaii_boy and Gembelindo. I dun care which part of you is Indonesian, or which relative you have is in Jogjakarta, or how
much you cried, YOU ARE A DISGRACE TO THE WHOLE NATION OF INDONESIA.
Idle talk was all you could do, and you weren't even good at it. I say YOU are birds of a feather with the people sitting in the seats of our
governments and administrations that are leading this country to hell. Shame on you.
Indonesians are VERY compassionate people. I hope the these two factory rejects didn't leave any funny ideas about Indonesians in general on this
forgive me if there are any inapproproiate words..
