Suicide! Is it a new trend today?



The Thirtieth of July of 2017. 10.38 (PM). 


Selamat malam para readers sekalian dan selamat bertemu kembali dengan tulisan terbaru saya malam ini.  Well, sisa 24 jam lebih lagi kita sudah akan berpindah ke tempat baru di tahun 2017 ini. Saya sendiri juga baru sadar kalau ternyata saya sudah menghabiskan hidup saya selama hampir tujuh bulan di tahun 2017 ini padahal rasanya baru kemarin saya memulai ngeblog lagi. I feel it too fast for welcoming August this year! Kalau mereview kejadian-kejadian apa saja yang booming beberapa bulan terakhir ini tulisan saya masih butuh tambahan chapter gara-gara terlalu banyak hal-hal yang aneh, unik, horor, misterius, hingga hal yang menegangkan menghiasi tahun 2017 ini. Timeline sosmed saya juga tiba-tiba penuh dengan beraneka ragam berita yang membuat saya speechless. Di penghujung bulan Juli ini saja saya sudah shock dengan berbagai macam kasus bunuh diri. Saya sendiri kadang deg-degan buka timeline sosmed saya. Hampir tiap hari ada saja kasus bunuh diri terbaru dengan berbagai macam sebab. Anyway is it a trend today?

Beberapa hari ini sejak berbagai kasus bunuh diri jadi heboh di dunia maya, saya sempat berpikir kalau bunuh diri itu memang sedang naik daun sekarang. Yah sebut saja trend bulan Juli 2017.  Dipikiran saya kadang juga terlintas tentang kasus-kasus narkoba yang sempat heboh yang menurut para pemujanya "Gak make narkoba berarti gak gaul". Gara-gara motto yang mereka eluh-eluhkan ini saya tiba-tiba jadi takut sendiri, jangan sampai motto tandingan juga muncul, "Gak bunuh diri berarti bukan anak gaul". It is so tragic dude! 

Dari beberapa kasus bunuh diri yang sempat gempar, kasus bunuh diri karena persoalan asmara adalah kasus yang paling menyentil menurut saya. Dari berita yang saya baca menerangkan seorang anak laki-laki yang masih duduk di bangku SMA memutuskan bunuh diri lantaran cemburu pada pacarnya yang ia curigai selingkuh. Wow! Parah sekali kisah asmara anak muda hari ini! Sesulit inikah memadu jalinan asmara pada balutan putih abu-abu hari ini? Dan otak saya tiba-tiba mengajak saya berkelana pada masa itu. Saat itu, saya sering melihat perilaku anarkis antara dua sejoli  gara-gara persoalan perasaan sakral ini. Sejak dulu si "cinta" ini memang sering berbuat ulah dikalangan kaula muda. Tapi kadang si "cinta" ini juga berperilaku jinak meskipun ujung-ujungnya berakhir dengan kata putus. Mereka bangga menyebutnya "Kami putus secara baik-baik" (?). Well, we back to the suicide case again. Faktor ekonomi,  masalah keluarga, ataupun bully adalah beberapa penyebab kasus bunuh diri ini terjadi.  Beberapa bulan yang lalu saya masih ingat dengan sangat jelas seorang pria yang ditinggal pergi oleh istrinya bunuh diri dengan cara yang cukup kekinian menurut saya. Bapak ini memadukan teknologi dalam proses mengakhiri hidupnya however, it was not cool anymore sir.  Pria yang terlihat sudah berusia baya tersebut memutuskan untuk gantung diri secara live dengan memakai akun facebooknya.  Tentu saja kasus ini heboh, jutaan pasang mata menyaksikan prosesi pria itu bertemu malaikat maut lewat sosial media.  Saya tidak menganggap kasus pria ini masih lebih baik dari pada anak SMA yang saya ceritakan sebelumnya hanya karena beliau sudah berkeluarga dan memang beban hidupnya lebih berat dari pada sekedar kisah roman picisan anak SMA, karena yang namanya bunuh diri tetap saja merupakan hal buruk. 

Belum lama ini saya juga melihat beberapa orang anak perempuan yang masih berusia belia melakukan aksi percobaan bunuh diri. Ada yang nangis-nangis sambil guling-guling,  minum sampo, sampai menyayat tangannya sendiri hanya karna persoalan asmara. What happened with our juveniles today? Saya setengah miris dan setengah kagum juga sih sama kelakuan mereka. Mirisnya yah karena mereka masih muda. Yeah, they are still young, many dreams are waiting for them in the future. Banyak hal yang seharusnya bisa mereka lakukan dari pada hal konyol seperti bunuh diri. Saya pernah berpikir, kalau bunuh jadi trend di Indonesia itu sebenarnya bagus juga untuk membantu pemerintah mengurangi jumlah penduduk dan angka kemiskinan. I think that I am going too far by thinking those stupid ideas. Sebagai seorang pendidik saya sebenarnya sangat miris melihat kasus-kasus bunuh diri dan percobaan bunuh diri yang bisa saja makin menjamur dikalangan remaja hari ini. Beberapa kasus tersebut sebenarnya bisa jadi tamparan untuk saya dan guru-guru lainnya. Apa benar kita tidak mampu melahirkan generasi penerus bangsa yang membanggakan? Do the teachers fail in teaching their students? 

Fakta juga yang cukup mengejutkan bagi saya adalah para pelaku bunuh diri ini berasal dari keluarga yang mampu dalam masalah ekonomi dan juga sangat mapan dalam bidang pendidikan. Saya semakin sadar jika ekonomi dan pendidikan yang bagus ternyata tak menjamin seorang anak untuk tidak melakukan tindakan-tindakan yang sangat tragis. So, do the parents fail in guiding their children?

Ok, I admit if  environment is the strongest factor in building the students character. I also cannot blame if the teachers and the parents have failed in educating the children today because many teachers and parents outside have been successful in creating a quality character to their children. Something miss in our situation today is about our attention to more care with the children . I believe if Our attitude to our children will reflect how the students will be growing up since sometime, our children do not  need our material they just need our attention in their daily life. Observe them!

Yukk Jadi orang tua dan guru yang lebih peka lagi terhadap anak-anak kita!

Pray for the Humanity in Palestine!



The twenty third of July of 2017. 08.00 (AM).


Different with my previous posts, this time I intentionally write this article in early morning. If you would like to check all my posts in this blog, you will find all of my articles were written in the night. Actually, everything in my thought will be transferred to this blog. Yeah cause I love to write everything in my brain at the same time. I cannot handle my brain if I just think it for a long day. I have to transfer my thought here. What happened last night was really torturing my head off. In these several days I have received many news about my brothers and sisters in Palestine. Blood, Gun, and Fire are the part of their life in Palestine. I really do not know when this conflict will be ended or this is an immortal war in the world. I have watched some videos about what was really happened in Al-Aqsa. It was really a horrible movie if those scenes were really a movie but yeah those scenes were a  real! Let me show you how terrible the situation there, just jump to these following links Palestine and Muslim in Palestine

People who always stay in the internet or in the news platform surely know about this never ending conflict between Palestine and Israel. It has been going for a long time. I do not have to tell what are the causes of this situation and this condition. You just need to check and look for the information by yourself but I have to say that I stand for my brothers and sisters in Palestine against Israel.  A couple videos above have reflected why I should hate the Zionist. Anyway, I am still confused why some countries just say 'I the President of bla bla bla, I the Head of bla bla bla or, I as the representative of bla bla bla criticize and condemn Israel's actions against Palestine". The Palestinians do not need it at all. They need our action. Sometime, I also think what this the purpose of United Nation in this universe. Do not they have to keep the peace and security in this world? The world seems to have been deaf and blind today. Do not they know that many children are getting serious injuries in Palestine! Many mothers have lost their children! Many people have lost their family! 

Nowadays, media, government till world are more quite belongs to the conflict in Palestine. When the world is mournful to the boom in Paris, UK or USA, the media is like a flash spread the news till a week moreover share the news for several weeks. They try to make it viral. Then now what about Palestine? Some international media just focus on another news then be silent to most horror situation nowadays. Accidentally I also find a video with a shocking tittle. Israel assumes if they are the victims. 




Mr. Erdogan as the President of Turkey stated that "You do not need to be a muslim to support Palestine, you just need to be a human!". If all of the nations have stayed for human rights in the world why do not we stay for supporting human right in Palestine? It is not about religion, nation, or ethnic group but this is about humanity in Palestine.

Have you ever felt?

The seventeenth of July of 2017. 07.44 (PM).

It has been a month I am vacuum to post my recent thought in this blog.  I realize that I cannot deny a bunch of routines attack my head nowadays especially my activity in front of my papers. Some deadlines in front of me have scared me continuously. Sometime I am envy with my friends who enjoy their life without any burdens. In another side, I really hate my flat days from Sunday to Sunday again. Moreover I ever call my self as an unlucky girl. Anyway have you ever felt this situation? 


My life is too boring to be shared in the public whereas I really want to be one of influential people in the universe unfortunately I am not included in the list, yeah so poor wkwkwk. However, in this boring activities I more become an observer around me actually. I look many things around me then realize that I should not be pessimistic women who are doubt with the future. Some people outside are more unlucky than me but they never complain their luck like me. I understand that they are not a superhero who are strong in facing many days. In reality they also complain the plot of their life but different with the others lame guy included me, they always try to go ahead. I can say if they have a brave heart in supporting their hard world. Here are some pictures that I took by my camera phone and show you if you are lucky then you think.    


I captured this picture in front of a mini market in Makassar city. At the time this women was felt a sleep while doing her job as a parking officer. 


This old man is my favorite somai seller in Makassar. Almost every night I wait for his somai. He always stays in front of a mini market which is located in Abdesir from afternoon till night.


I found this scene in one of stores area in Bantaeng regency. It was a hot day when he was walking while carrying his goods along the way.


If you see this picture please do not judge him as a lunatic or a psycho. He was only a pedicab driver who was waiting for passengers in front of a hospital in Bantaeng. 


I captured this view after pouring rain in a book store in Makassar. I saw an old man still used his rain coat while selling balloons. 


In my way to home, I met with a father with his two daughters in a pedicab. I guessed if the sacks that they brought contained of garbage plastic bottles.   


If you are in Makassar this picture will be a common view that you will find a long the traffic area. From kids till old man and old women will sell some boxes of tissue to you.

   
Some pictures above are only a half of situation and condition of the people who are fighting to stay alive in a big city like Makassar. Those scenes that I find directly with my eyes teach me that I should say thanks to God, Allah SWT who has given me a better life then the others. I should be ashamed to people in the frames above who remain strong and steadfast in the midst of difficulties and risks that they face. Salute for the wage workers in this universe. Hats off to you!

Regard me,



A life observer
