National Ressurection Day 2010

On 20 May 1908, several native Indonesian led by Dr. Soetomo founded the first organization of native Indonesians, namely Boedi Oetomo.

This was a courageous action, because at that time Indonesia was occupied by the Dutch colonial forces whereby natives activities were strictly limited and oppressed.

It was this action that inspired independence movements in Indonesia, starting from the creation of the first native political party namely the Indische Partij in 1912, followed by the first congress of native youths on
28 October 1928, and the declaration of independence on 17 August 1945.

Due to the above mentioned facts, the 20th of May has officially been declared as the National Resurrection Day. 

I hope that those who are holding power now would always remember and respect all the efforts that have been made by our founding fathers, therefore do their very best to make Indonesia a better place to live. .

"History" is a Greek word which means, literally, just "investigation." -Arnold Toynbee

and thus

We investigate the past not to deduce practical political lessons, but to find out what really happened. -

and I leave you my friend with this quote

History itself touches only a small part of a nation's life. Most of the activities and sufferings of the people ... have been and will remain without written record.
E. L. Wood word

Happy National Ressurection Day 2010 to you and Indonesia.

Will young generations still recall the National Resurrection tomorrow?

Edwin,

I also have the same question, that's the reason why I posted this.
I believe that we must remind the younger generations about it.
