V.A.L.E.N.T.I.N.E….

Valentine…
Exactly what is it? When I asked my kids in the classroom, they all shouted “it’s about giving chocolate to our friends Ibu Riri..!”
Why you have to give chocolate?
“Because it’s chocolate’s day!”
I smiled. Well, can’t blame of the conclusion they’ve made as that what it seemed.
However, I will agree to it, too. 😍 agree to the fact that chocolate is sweet, means that we share the sweetness to others. And that the day reminds us the thought of giving, thinking of others-

Below is one of my favorites:

THE STARFISH POEM

Once upon a time there was a wise man

who used to go to the ocean

to do his writing.

He had a habit of walking

on the beach

before he began his work.

One day he was walking along

the shore.

As he looked down the beach,

he saw a human

figure moving like a dancer.

He smiled to himself to think

of someone who would

dance to the day.

So he began to walk faster

to catch up.

As he got closer, he saw

that it was a young man

and the young man wasn’t dancing,

but instead he was reaching

down to the shore,

picking up something

and very gently throwing it

into the ocean.

As he got closer he called out,

“Good morning! What are you doing?”

The young man paused,

looked up and replied,

“Throwing starfish in the ocean.”

“I guess I should have asked,

why are you throwing starfish in the ocean?”

“The sun is up and the tide is going out.

And if I don’t throw them in they’ll die.”

“But, young man, don’t you realize that

there are miles and miles of beach

and starfish all along it.

You can’t possibly make a difference!”

The young man listened politely.

Then bent down, picked up another starfish

and threw it into the sea,

past the breaking waves and said-

“It made a difference for that one.”

no matter how small step we’ve made, it counts!

Aku CINTA Indonesia…yang kini telah berubah warna, berubah aroma, berubah murka! Karena plastik dari makanan kita, gas buangan dari mobil-mobil kita, sampah yang mengambang di sungai dan lautan….
Sehingga cacing mengadu pada daratan. Sehingga para alga mengeluh pada lautan.. Dan burung-burung berbondong menukas bayu…

Mari sayangi bumi…cintai Ibu Pertiwi..!
