Happy 467th birthday Semarang!
Spending some time at home really brought the all memories back to me with a deep gratitude for my life, for my freedom, and for all of those who have stood in the breach, who fought for our freedom over and over again.
Just like any city, we have our issues. But unlike every city, we have people that want to make it better and are doing so. I’ve seen the city change many times over. It’s amazing how much progress we’ve made. Great cities are built slowly over the course of generations, much longer than our human lives. Can’t wait for you to grow up!
Happy birthday Semarang!
