Hall of Fame

Lagu tersebut saya dengar pertama kali saat dinyanyikan anak-anak grade 5 sewaktu art performance di sekolah Amira, Moreland Primary School. Sekali mendengar langsung jatuh cinta. Hingga saat ini entah sudah saya dengar berapa kali. Liriknya sungguh luar biasa. Membuat jiwa tergetar. Bagi saya yang sudah berkepala empat lirik tersebut sangat memotivasi. Saya sendiri berniat untuk meninternalisasi pesan lagu tersebut ke dalam dada Amira, untuk selanjutnya ke Ayla dan Aufa kelak kalau lelaki kecil itu sudah cukup bisa memahami.

Hmmm..sepertinya lagu ini cocok untuk ilustrasi tulisan saya sebelumnya tentang generasi yang harus kita bentuk: generasi pembangun yang butuh dilahirkan dengan kesungguhan niat dan totalitas mencurahkan segenap tenaga .
