Heroes: Para Pahlawan Pilihan

>> Monday, March 21, 2011

A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to preserve and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles - Christopher Reeve

Since the beginning, I always like Kick Andy (even though, I don't regularly watch every week). But, Yes, Kick Andy is one of my favorite TV program. This TV program definitely broad your mind and see every problem with your heart. So, what's the relation between this book and Kick Andy? Well, some guests on Kick Andy were reviewed in this book. They are not famous, an ordinary people, who have strong will which, based on this book, become heroes.

There are six persons reviewed by this book. Each person contribute their life on different aspects. they are Sidik, Haji Agus Bambang Priyanto, Dr. Joserizal Jurnalis, Saekan, Dynand fariz, and Ciptono. Sidik, a man with no leg, become a successful entrepreneurship. Become a person who handicapped, Sidik didn't easily give up. He went to Jakarta, looking for a job. It is not easy for a handicapped man lives in Jakarta but he can manage it. Sidik can break all obstacle.

Another hero is Haji Agus Bambang Priyanto, a moslem who lives in Bali, He's one of person who saved Bomb Bali's victim. We all know that the suspect for Bomb Bali (and all terrorist bombing in Indonesia) were "stern" moslem. But Haji Agus is eager to help, and put aside race or belief the bomb victim. What in his mind is he try to save lives as many as he could. This can be a portrait that all moslems in Indonesia are not terroris.

The Third hero is Dr. Joserizal Jurnalis, a surgeon who become volunteer. he become a volunteer on Maluku, Aceh even in Afghanistan and Irak. Saekan, a simple man who become pioneer on reforesting slope on Mt. Willis. Dynand fariz, a pioneer of Jember Fashion Carnaval (JFC). And the last hero is Ciptono, A teacher of handicapped (deaf, mute or autism) students.

Overall, this is a one good book. It reveals that becomes a hero, you don't have a super power or a lot of money. An ordinary person can become a hero if he has strong will to preserve and endure when facing an overwhelming obstacle. It could be anyone, It could be a driver, a pedicab driver, office boy, it could be journalist, or it could be YOU :).
