Pita

Arti warna pada simbol Pita dan bentuk kepedulian kita
=======================================================

Beberapa waktu yang lalu ramai penggunaan simbol pita merah yang disematkan di dada sebagai bukti kepedulian terhadap ODHA (Orang Dengan HIV dan AIDS). Berlanjut dengan penggunaan pita pink sebagai bentuk kepedulian terhadap kanker payudara. Dan sekarang ini nih di USA sono lagi demen ama pita kuning sebagai dukungan terhadap prajurit mereka yang ditugaskan di Irak dan medan tempur lainnya. Pita kuning tersebut biasanya bertuliskan Save Our Troops dan bahkan beberapa orang memberikan dukungan nya dengan cara mengikatkan pita kuning di pohon di sekitar rumah mereka. Banyak cerita seputar penggunaan pita-pita tersebut dan warna-warna yang berbeda dari setiap pita mewakili maksud tertentu.

Banyak dari nama penyakit dan singkatan di bawah ini tidak diterjemahkan. Dikarenakan tidak terdapatnya padanan yang cocok dalam bahasa Indonesia atau merupakan singkatan yang tidak dapat di artikan secara harafiah. Silakan tanya pada Mr. G untuk penjelasan lebih lanjut sekalian menambah perbendaharaan bahasa kita.

Kenakanlah pita dan katakan bahwa KITA PEDULI.

Salam.
