Apakah Kita Masih Terikat Pada Sumpah Pemuda 28 Oktober 1928?

The spirit to be united in 1928, now known as the Youth Pledge Day is it still ours?

Afraid that their children will be left behind in the global world, more and more parents imposing their children to speak English as their daily language. It is obvious that we do need international language such as English to enter the global competition, but do we have to take our own language for granted?

Regional languages or dialects are also being left behind. More and more youngsters did not have this kind of language attachment. So, are we still attached to the spirit of the Youth Pledge Day or is it all ceremonial?
