How does it feel?

Seorang Ibu Guru taman kanak-kanak ( TK ) mengadakan “permainan.”
A kindergarten teacher made a “game.”
Ibu Guru menyuruh anak tiap-tiap muridnya membawa kantong plastik transparan satu buah dan kentang. Masing-masing kentang tersebut di beri nama berdasarkan nama orang yang dibenci, sehingga jumlah kentangnya tidak ditentukan berapa … tergantung jumlah orang-orang yang dibenci.
She asked each student brought a transparent plastic bag and potato. She did not decide how many potato that they should brought. It depended on how many people that they hate, and each potato named as people they hate’s name.


Pada hari yang disepakati masing-masing murid membawa kentang dalam kantong plastik. Ada yang berjumlah 2, ada yang 3 bahkan ada yang 5. Seperti perintah guru mereka tiap-tiap kentang di beri nama sesuai nama orang yang dibenci.
On the day that they agreed, all students do as their teacher asked them to do. They brought 2 potatoes, 3 potatoes, and even 5 potatoes. 

 

Murid-murid harus membawa kantong plastik berisi kentang tersebut kemana saja mereka pergi, bahkan ke toilet sekalipun, selama 1 minggu. Hari berganti hari, kentang-kentang pun mulai membusuk, murid-murid mulai mengeluh, apalagi yang membawa 5 buah kentang, selain berat baunya juga tidak sedap.
They have to brought that potatoes in the transparent plastic bag wherever they go, even to a toilet, for a week. Days passing by, the potatoes rotten, and the students complained as it was weight and stink.


Setelah 1 minggu murid-murid TK tersebut merasa lega karena penderitaan mereka akan segera berakhir.
After a week, they felt happy because their misery will be ended soon.


Ibu Guru : ” Bagaimana rasanya membawa kentang selama 1 minggu ?”
Teacher: “How does it feel for carry potatoes for a week?”


Keluarlah keluhan dari murid-murid TK tersebut, pada umumnya mereka tidak merasa nyaman harus membawa kentang-kentang busuk tersebut ke mana pun mereka pergi.
They started complained, and generally, they felt uncomfortable with that situation.


Guru pun menjelaskan apa arti dari ” permainan ” yang mereka lakukan.
Then the teacher explained what was the meaning of this game.


Ibu Guru : ” Seperti itulah kebencian yang selalu kita bawa-bawa apabila kita tidak bisa memaafkan orang lain. Sungguh sangat tidak menyenangkan membawa kentang busuk kemana pun kita pergi. Itu hanya satu minggu, bagaimana jika kita membawa kebencian itu seumur hidup ? Alangkah tidak nyamannya …
Teacher: “It is pretty much how it looks like when we carry hatred as we did not forgive people. Really uncomfortable, right? It’s only for a week. Can you imagine when we do that for a whole life?”
