Peristiwa bersejarah lain pada seputar ulang tahunku 17 Mei 2011 selain yang aku tulis di “Man Chest Rahma United Memerlukan Siti” dan “Ulang Tahunku 2011 Dan Tim Balap Paris Hilton Menang Pertama Kali Pada Balap MotoGP 125cc Di Le Mans“, adalah kunjungan empat hari Ratu Elizabeth ke Republik Irlandia yang merupakan kunjungan pertama beliau dan juga kunjungan pertama kepala kerajaan Inggris sejak 100 tahun lalu, sejak tahun 1911.

Pada tahun 1911 kunjungan terakhir kali dilakukan oleh Raja George V, saat itu beliau baru saja dilantik menjadi raja Inggris sedangkan Irlandia waktu itu masih dibawah kekuasaan Inggris. Seiring perjalanan waktu, Irlandia yang sejak lama memang cenderung bergolak kemudian berhasil merdeka pada tahun 1922 menjadi Republik Irlandia, yang disebut oleh DailyMail sebagai “freedom from Britain would come at a price – a bloody war of independence and a painful partition in 1922”. Sejak saat itu pulau Irlandia terbagi dua, Republik Irlandia yang sudah merdeka dan Irlandia Utara yang tetap dibawah Inggris.

Setelah kemerdekaan itu, pertikaian berlanjut di pulau Irlandia antara kelompok yang setuju merdeka dan yang ingin tetap dibawah Inggris. Aku juga masih ingat dulu di TV sering muncul berita terjadi ledakan bom di Irlandia yang dipasang oleh kelompok yang bertikai. Dari data di Internet, ada bom mobil yang cukup terkenal yaitu pada 17 Mei 1974, meledak di tiga kota sekaligus di Irlandia. Mobil-mobil itu dirampas beberapa jam sebelum dipasangi bom dan diledakkan. Jadi berbeda dengan bom mobil di Bali yang dibeli beberapa hari sebelum diledakkan, kalau di Irlandia mobil-mobil itu dirampas cuma beberapa jam sebelum dipasangi bom dan diledakkan, menunjukkan bahwa kelompok yang melakukan memang ahli dan terlatih. Pertikaian bertahun-tahun itu baru berakhir setelah perjanjian damai pada tahun 1998.

Menjelang keberangkatan Ratu Elizabeth dalam perjalanan bersejarah ke Irlandia 17 Mei 2011, muncul ancaman bom dari teroris kelompok republikan Irlandia yang mengancam akan meledakkan bom di pusat kota London. Dan dua bom juga ditemukan di Irlandia, satu bom palsu di dalam kota Dublin dan satu lagi bom asli berbentuk pipa di dalam sebuah bus di kota Maynooth dekat Dublin.

Kunjungan bersejarah ini mau tak mau seperti terkait juga dengan kesediaanku ketemu ajal untuk kebaikan umat manusia. Sebab selain dilakukan tepat pada hari ulang tahunku, juga karena kediaman resmi presiden Irlandia itu disebut dengan  Aras An Uachtarain yang mengingatkan pada kata “Arasy” yang biasa dikaitkan dengan singgasana Allah SWT. Jadi sesuai kesediaanku untuk ketemu ajal menghadap Allah SWT untuk kebaikan umat manusia.

Selain itu ada kejadian bersejarah lain yaitu ulang tahun ke-85 Ratu Elizabeth pada 21 April 2011 yang lalu merupakan ulang tahun pertama yang jatuh pada hari Maundy Thursday, yaitu hari sebelum perayaan Jumat Agung umat Kristiani. Kata “Maundy” itu seperti berarti “mau end” terkait kesediaanku untuk “end”, ketemu ajal untuk kebaikan umat manusia.

Pada saat ulang tahun 21 April 2011 itu Ratu Elizabeth memakai baju dan topi biru muda seperti biru muda pada jilbab kamu di lukisan “Sid Paris Rahma Maia At The Gym” yang mulai aku kerjakan tanggal 10 Februari 2011.
