You know, when you’re sick, normally you go to a doctor. No no no, this is not Doctor’s Fee – FOC Part 2.
They are people who studied for a certain period of time in a university to be able to cure a sick person, and Itrust them as people who know what they’re doing. I told this before, both of my parents are doctors.
And I know nowadays alternative medicine & therapy are also so popular, as some people believe chemical medicine the doctors give you such as antibiotics could damage your internal organ, ie. kidney for a long term and continuous consumption. I guess for traditional & alternative medicine as long as you know what you’re taking is save for your body, than it is acceptable.
But I just don’t get it ! when I read the newspaper and saw on TV, thousands of people are willing to queue and evenspend the nights in front of a 10 year-old kid’s house,named PONARI in Jombang,East Java,Indonesia whom theybelieve has an almighty power to cure sickness by only dipping his hand holding a stone he admitted was given by the‘sky above’ through lightning to a glass of water.
His neighbor was his first patient coincidently, then the news spreaded around the area very fast.
Seeing that much of people with a hope that their sickness will go away only by drinking a water from Ponari’s stone made me sad. Not only it’s ridiculous, but it shows people out there how bad our medical service is in the country.
If only the Government is able to provide free health facilities specially to the poor people, none of these would happen. I’m talking about 5 people died while they were waiting for Ponari, the elders who could not even get an air to breath with so many crowd around. This is insane.
