I finally found this letter. I was 9 years old in 1996 when Ibu tien soeharto the wife of president soeharto ( the second president of Indonesia ) passed away. That day, i feel so touched and sad when i saw the funeral and seeing the sad face of our president. A few hours later, after seeing all the sad news and memorable moment on tv, i took my drawing book, and wrote a poem for Ibu Tien Soeharto. Suddenly my mom and dad saw it and decided to send the poem directly to Mr.President.
A few month later, i’ve got this letter. I was so speechless when i knew that Bpk. Soeharto reply my poem. He also gave me a picture. A family portrait of Cendana. I’m so flattered and honourable. Despite what other people say about him, i always have a respect for him and what he already gave for our country. And this is a message from him that i’ll never forget..
