All About Life~

Tsunami happened again in my country, Indonesia. My father just gave me some newspapers and I read it randomly. One story really touch me. How a child can protect someone…

His name is Dernikus (3 years old). His parents are Rantinus & Sarni. Dernikus had 3 sister and brother. Their names are Ralminus (8 years old), Surni (7 years old), and a 3 months baby. Actually when the first wave of the tsunami, their parents could save them. But when the second wave was coming, their mother who hold Dernikus and the baby fell…then Dernikus and the baby lost. Their father said that for survival they ate some leaves in the jungle. Without that maybe they had been died. 2 Days later the team evacuate them…and she met again with her 2 child. The 2 child were in weak condition and suffered from dehydration. Before they evacuated Dernikus, he died in the lap of his father. He died according to the news maybe because he tried to save his lil brother by hugged the baby all night long in the jungle.


From the story above we can learn that sometimes people saying he/she don’t have enough power to protect someone. But what you will say with just a 3 years old boy do it. Not enough words to describe it. Wondering a little boy in the jungle with a little baby. I appraise his effort and I felt sad too because he had gone from us. I wish the best for him there beside God & I wish the best for his family. Hey, God I hope you will bless Indonesian people. We love you and we hope we are strong enough when the disasters coming.


I just hearing Anne Murray – You needed me song when making this post…kinda sad song…

I cried a tear
You wiped it dry
I was confused
You cleared my mind
I sold my soul
You bought it back for me
And held me up and gave me dignity
Somehow you needed me.

You gave me strength

To stand alone again
To face the world
Out on my own again
You put me high upon a pedestal
So high that I could almost see eternity
You needed me
You needed me

And I can’t believe it’s you I can’t believe it’s true
I needed you and you were there
And I’ll never leave, why should I leave
I’d be a fool
‘Cause I’ve finally found someone who really cares

You held my hand
When it was cold
When I was lost
You took me home
You gave me hope
When I was at the end
And turned my lies
Back into truth again
You even called me friend

Repeat Chorus

You needed me
You needed me
