Tanggal 22 Februari 2011 aku buka Twitter dan lihat akun Bill Gates, ternyata ada pesan Bill Gates kepada Warren Buffett tertanggal 16 Februari 2011 berisi ucapan selamat atas perolehan penghargaan Medal of Freedom pada 15 Februari 2011 yang dilakukan pada upacara di White House. Dan kemudian pada 23 Februari 2011 pada Twitter kamu ada pesan kamu yang memuat kata “merdeka”.

Adapun mengenai Medal of Freedom itu, menurut kantor berita AP: “Medal of Freedom is the nation’s highest civilian honor, and is presented to people who have made important contributions to U.S. national security, world peace, culture or other significant public or private endeavors.

Diantara 15 orang tokoh yang memperoleh Medal of Freedom tahun 2011 ini, terdapat seorang pelukis yaitu Jasper Johns yang dalam situs resmi White House disebut “his work has influenced pop, minimal, and conceptual art“. Dan aku baru tahu bahwa sudah sekitar 34 tahun penghargaan semacam itu tidak pernah diberikan kepada seorang pelukis, seperti ditulis oleh Huffington Post mengutip dari Wall Street Journal : “Among the politicians and investors, contemporary artist Jasper Johns received the Presidential Medal of Freedom at The White House Tuesday afternoon. It’s been 34 years since a studio painter or sculptor received the nation’s highest civilian honor.” Sebelum Jasper Johns, sekitar 34 tahun yang lalu pelukis yang mendapat juga Medal of Freedom adalah Georgia O’Keeffe, pada tahun 1977 oleh presiden Gerald Ford.

Tokoh lain yang mendapat Medal of Freedom tahun 2011 ini adalah PM Jerman Angela Merkel namun beliau berhalangan hadir, dan menurut situs White House “She has often said that freedom is the happiest experience of her life“.

Juga ada antara lain mantan presiden George HW Bush, pemain celo Yo Yo Ma, pemain baseball legendaris Stan Musial. Nama belakang Stan Musial seperti memuat kata “sial”, sehingga seperti terinspirasi oleh suratku tanggal 15 Januari 2011 “Tanggal 10 Di Twitter Rahma Dan Deadspot Di Australia Open“. Pada surat itu aku tulis mengenai status kamu yang bukan jimat keberuntungan, sebab banjir besar di Australia menyebabkan tambang batubara Australia mengalami gangguan produksi sehingga membuka kesempatan untuk perusahaan batubara keluarga Bakrie mengambil alih pasar batubara itu. Dan itu terjadi beberapa bulan setelah kamu keluar dari TV-One yang juga milik keluarga Bakrie. Sehingga seperti peringatan dari langit kepada siapapun untuk menghindari kamu, disebabkan kamu harus konsentrasi menjalani tugas dari Allah bersama aku, bukan dengan orang lain, untuk kebaikan umat manusia.

Juga ada pemain basket yang mendapat Medal of Freedom tahun 2011 yaitu Bill Russell, yang disebut sebagai “The first African American to coach in the NBA, an impassioned advocate of human rights, he marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and has been a consistent advocate of equality. ”

Selain itu ada pula pengarang buku dan puisi Maya Angelou. “Dr. Maya Angelou is a prominent and celebrated author, poet, educator, producer, actress, filmmaker, and civil rights activist, who is currently the Reynolds Professor of American Studies at Wake Forest University.  She has served on two presidential committees, was awarded the Presidential Medal for the Arts in 2000 and the Lincoln Medal in 2008“. Seperti terinspirasi oleh lukisan yang sedang aku kerjakan yang memuat Paris Hilton, kamu dan Maia Dhani, yang aku kerjakan sejak tanggal 10 Februari 2011.
