We as the nation’s successors must know about all things regarding to our nation’s independence day. With that being said, Indonesia’s 76th Independence Day, so that we could appreciate and love more about our country. One of which is to learn the nation’s history of independence.
Indonesia’s Proclamation of Independence was carried out on the 17th of August, 1945 AD or on the 17th of August 2605 in Japanese year. The proclamation text was declared by Soekarno and was accompanied by Drs. Mohammad Hatta on 56 East Pegangsaan St. in Jakarta.
The independence background begins with the surrender of the Japanese against allies of The Soviet Union, America, Great Britain, and China because America blew up Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the 6th and 9th of August, 1945. At the end the Japanese officially unconditionally surrendered to the allies on August 14th 1945.
After going through some difficulties, Soekarno; accompanied by Drs. Mohammad Hatta, managed to proclaim the independence of Indonesia on August 17th 1945.
Indonesia’s Independence Day definitely gives a lot of meaning and lessons to us all upon a lot of circumstances, in which are:
1. As a unifier of the nation
2. Cooperation and trust
3. Respect and appreciation
There are lots of positive activities that we can do to celebrate the 76th Independence Day, other than that we should also manifest the spirit of our nation’s veterans who had fought for our independence in the past. Because of the global pandemic, we could not really have the same sort of Independence Day as what we used to have, although there are lots of good things we could do to celebrate the Independence Day. But we could always celebrate it at home, like raising the nation’s flag at home, listening to the national anthem, and also sending good prayers to the veterans who passed away from fighting for our country.
Happy 76th Independence Day! Indonesia Tangguh, Indonesia Tumbuh! MERDEKA!
