WEAR A MASK OR GO TO JAIL
In an effort to curb the spread of Spanish Flu in 1918, some states in the US quarantined citizens; others made the wearing of face masks mandatory, at the same time as shutting down “all places of amusement”. According to a law passed in San Francisco in October of that year, on the day that state-wide infections passed 50,000, anyone seen not wearing a gauze face covering was subject to fines that ranged from $5 to $100 and the possibility of 10 days’ imprisonment.

Kami Tidak Takut. Huh?

Saya perhatikan belakangan ini berbondong-bondong orang di sekitar saya—kebanyakan anak muda—menggabungkan dirinya di Indonesia Unite, sebuah komunitas yang dibentuk untuk merespons peristiwa bom Ritz-Marriot 17 Juli 2009 sekaligus menyebarkan semangat anti terorisme. Saat tulisan ini dibuat, sudah lebih dari 170 ribu orang menjadi anggota Indonesia Unite di Facebook. Komplet dengan limpah ucapan-ucapan berbau nasionalisme di Wall-nya. Sungguh mencengangkan lagi membanggakan bagaimana sejawat se-Nusantara membusungkan dada menunjukkan kecintaannya pada negara bernama Indonesia, bahu membahu melawan penjahat HAM berkedok agama bersenjatakan bom, seraya penuh patriotisme berteriak: Kami Tidak Takut!

Kami tidak takut. Huh? Ini masalahnya. Saya kurang paham apa sejawat, sobat, kerabat, saya itu benar-benar tidak takut dengan bom yang mematikan tersebut. Saya pribadi mah masih sedikit menggigil merinding dan agak trauma dengan peristiwa mengerikan itu (ketika Bom Bali I saya berada hanya lusinan meter dari lokasi ledakan bom dan menyaksikan sendiri semburan api nan masif & merasakan gelegarnya yang gigantik). Hanya saja mungkin karena ledakan bom di negara ini sudah jadi makanan sehari-hari, makanya saya, dan mungkin juga rekan-rekan di Indonesia Unite, merasa bahwa peristiwa bom adalah semacam “same shit different day” alias sudah terbiasa.
