Sometimes there are so much hatred or sentiment when we talk in the level of state. But more frequently there are more peace and love when we talk in the level of people to people. I learned this a lot during my visit to several countries. I knew I heard a lot from media how my country and some other countries were not harmonious and got us trapped in the bad image of each other. But when I met several people from those countries, all those images disappeared. They were barely what we used to think.
We often like countries that located far away from our country and adore the people so much. But what I know from so-far experiences is that I get along more with people from the same region. We can understand more and get more things in common with them. Probably that’s what our governments do in regionalism.
