All of us might have experienced bad things in our lives. Some just on a bad day, but some events cannot be forgotten. My bad experience was when I was hit by a motorcycle. The worst part of the injury was on my right leg and I could see both the blood and flesh. Just a second before the motorcycle hit me, I still remember hearing the loud horn. That’s why I would not want to cross the road by myself for a while. Every time I wanted to cross the road, and I heard somebody honking...

"Have you seen my Childhood? I'm searching for that wonder in my youth Like pirates in adventurous dreams, Of conquest and kings on the throne..." Childhood - Michael Jackson I see that most of the writers here are between the ages of 18 to 23. I guess we have (almost) the same childhood stuff in common, like the same hero, favorite movies, and others. We loved to play hide-and-seek and other "traditional" games. However, I am sad to discover that most children nowaday...

On December 1st-7th 2013, there is an event called National Condom Week, where committees campaign against the infection of HIV by giving out free condoms. This event is held in relation with World AIDS Day which we celebrated on December 1st. However, National Condom Week causes a firm controversy between the affirmative and the opposition. The opposition says that giving away condoms to people, will increase the probability of people having sex and cause several lost for the rela...

It’s been a week since the last article I posted on Voices of Youth. In this post, I guess I will not talk about political or educational problems. I will not elaborate how climate change affects people in so many ways. This time, I would like to talk about heart and the self- about how to handle a big down, the low phase that will be experienced by every person in this world. I love to write and sing. I guess by writing and singing, I can help people. At least I can help them...

Social media is kind of a technological thing that is really near to our lives. Technological? I guess it will be too narrow if I said that it is only a technological thing. It has entered other aspects such as education, business, and social life. My country, Indonesia, is one of the countries with the largest users of social media. There are 19.5 million Twitter users, 65 million Facebook users, and 700 thousand Path users. WOW! Such large numbers! Even I am included in those s...

Business and children, most of us will see no relation between these two words. Business is close to people who are already grown up, while children do not have any business about business because they have not been able to run a business yet. However, children often become victims of some business. Many corporations do not give attention to children’s right, or whether their business will give bad impact to children or not. In Indonesia, based on the evaluation that has been don...

I found a very interesting article in the newspaper. It is about Busway Kicks. What are Busway Kicks? In Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia, there is a transportation called Transjakarta. It is not a new vehicle or a modified-car, it’s just a new system where a bus (Transjakarta) has a special track on the road. The track is called Busway. It’s just like a train system, but without any rail, and the vehicle is bus. Other vehicles on the road (actually) are forbidden to go...

This post is inspired by a topic from VOY debate about whether the value of our exams can represent the value of our capability. It somehow gave birth to a type of a person called study-oriented. I don’t want to be judgmental because I believe that that kind of person has their own reasons to finally decide to be study-oriented. However, what I want to double-underlined is they become a study-oriented person unconsciously and based on the value that society has made. It is like y...
