We will stop fighting, promise

January 12, 2010

Keeping away from strife is an honor for a man, But any fool will quarrel. Proverbs 20:3

Solomon asked, “Do you see yourself as an honorable man or a fool?” If you avoid strife and fighting then you are an honorable man. But if you like to quarrel about anything and everything then you are a fool. Do you remember that our kids at SD Inpres state elementary school in Kwamki Lama in Mimika, Papua have not been school.

While they had got problem, we were proud to fight with our family. As a father I am ashamed with my kid’s complaint “father, please stop your involvement in the conflict, we want to school now.” My kid reminds me Solomon message during our prayer at Church that the honorable thing for a man to do is avoid strife and quarreling, not engage in it. Thank Mimika Police chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Moh. Sagi for your effort to mediate in the dispute.

Governors across the country declared Tuesday their preparedness for Wednesday’s presidential election, and pledged to uphold the Constitutional Court’s ruling to allow unregistered voters to cast ballots using their ID cards. The governors made the pledge during a video conference with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, who is one of the three contenders in the race.

Using a video conference, closeness we can feel between Papua and Jakarta. It remembered us  about  a correct use of an Indonesian proverb which says far from eyes but close to heart. Papua Governor Barnabas Suebu, a governor from the country’s 33 provinces was saying nearly 2.2 million registered voters in the country’s easternmost province were facing ballot shortages. However, he said only Papua’s Yahukimo regency had not received any ballot papers yet due to geographical and weather difficulties. The majority of Indonesia’s governors claimed Tuesday they had all the ballots, security and manpower necessary to run a successful presidential election on Wednesday, though minor incidents in some regions suggested otherwise.

The President told the 33 governors to stay “neutral and professional” in holding the election, and help the General Elections Commission (KPU) implement the new Constitutional Court ruling. The video conference lasted about an hour. A total of 11 governors reported on their latest preparations in their respective provinces ahead of tomorrow’s polls, while others listened.
