Care To Hands In Hands?

Sejak "pergerakan perempuan" bergolak dan bermunculan pada 1700-an di Eropa - which the founding mother of Feminism - sikap 'kolosal' ini terus berlari dan mengejar pembaharuan. Semakin menguat. Selanjutnya, menjelang abad 19 feminisme lahir menjadi gerakan yang cukup mendapatkan perhatian dari para perempuan kulit putih di Eropa.

Perempuan di negara-negara penjajah Eropa memperjuangkan apa yang mereka sebut sebagai "keterikatan" (perempuan) universal yang hingga kini dikenal dengan istilah "universal sisterhood". And we should stick with it. Ini merupakan satu dari prinsip-prinsip dasar  "kebersamaan perempuan" bahwa kita (perempuan) baiknya saling "mendukung" dan berpegangan. Sehingga, (seharusnya) tak ada lagi alasan untuk saling curiga dan menyimpan rasa (takut) akan tersaingi atau terbebani antar kita. Landed your feet, back to the roots. Bawa kembali jiwa keterikatan dan bahu-membahu untuk saling berbagi. Agar "tali" itu tetap begitu adanya. Biarkan semakin panjang dan terus bersimpul. Jangan putuskan dengan prasangka. Woman should hands in hands. One soul, one emotion.

-Happy April, Ladies!

Crossing The Street

I really don't understand with today-attitude of people.

While am with a bunch of friends, walking along a street to find our dinner. Yet we need to cross, the place is in the opposite of our rows. Well, anyway, our crossing's style it's actually not in a proper way to do. There is no allowing-cross sign. It's definitely false. Yet we still crossed. But I know one thing, while am crossing I need to slow down and see the both side, left and right. So whenever the green light are ready and told me to go, then I will run as fast as I can. Though the street are empty and no cars in the distance.

But, my friends, while my legs are keep running, they was like in a laid-back style, walk easy, and very slow. I swing my hand and grab his, I say "Come on, buddy, we should run." and he said "Why rush, there are no cars crossing us." At that moment, I thought is it me, act like am paranoid, or is it them who underestimate the risks? He must be crazy, then.

I against those kinda thought. I think when we try to do something that shouldn't we do, then we must be doubly careful than usual. Specially when it talks about facing dangers and someone's life. We don't want to put people in trouble for what we do. You may not only endanger yourself but also others.
