Youth Pledge (Sumpah Pemuda)

Toward the end of October, we are Indonesian people reminded one of the historical events. October 28, is a milestone for Indonesia, where youngsters unite the determination and spirit for unity. As a form of unity statement, in the Youth Congress II, they poured in a 3 point formula:

1.We the sons and daughters of Indonesia, acknowledge one motherland, Indonesia.
2.We the sons and daughters of Indonesia, acknowledge one nation, the nation of Indonesia.
3.We the sons and daughters of Indonesia, respect the language of unity, Indonesian.

Youth Pledge (Sumpah Pemuda) formulation was written by Moehammad Yamin on a paper when Mr. Sunario, as a scout delegates was in speeching at the last session of Congress. The oath was initially read by Soegondo and then explained in detail by Yamin.

Today, Youth Pledge's spirit become a means to unite all Indonesian people. Not only for the youth but also to all of Indonesia citizens, to realize that we are one Indonesia.
