Youth Oath Day is a very historic day for the Indonesian people. The Youth Pledge is a major milestone in the history of Indonesia’s independence movement. This pledge is seen as a crystallization of the spirit to emphasize the ideals of the founding of the country. However, if a nation forgets the history and culture contained in it, then that is the characteristic of the destruction of a nation. But we all certainly do not expect that to happen.
As we know, the Youth Pledge Day is commemorated by all the people of the Indonesian people every year on October 28th. This was done to commemorate the struggle and persistence of Indonesian youth in the independence movement for the establishment of the Indonesian nation.
And the following are words that can inspire us to look forward to a hopeful future:
Kami poetra dan poetri Indonesia, mengakoe bertoempah darah jang satoe, Tanah Air Indonesia.
Kami poetra dan poetri Indonesia, mengakoe berbangsa jang satoe, bangsa Indonesia.
Kami poetra dan poetri Indonesia, mendjoendjoeng bahasa persatoean, bahasa Indonesia.
And may the words of this youth oath make us aware, so that we can all appreciate and respect each of our Warriors’ services to unite the country into the country of Indonesia.
Stay proud to be the Indonesian Youth. And keep praying for all of our fallen heroes to overtake us in our struggle to free our Nation.
