In the chapter in No Ceiling, No Walls where I discuss the importance of living your values I highlight Nobel Peace Prize winner, Aung San Suu Kyi because she has steadfastly held to and her commitment to non-violence and action for democracy.
I'm delighted to report that after 7 and a half years under house arrest, she has been released by the military junta in control of the government of Burma/Myanmar.
You will find a short photo history about her here."If we work in unity, we will achieve our goal. We have a lot of things to do," she told the well-wishers, who quickly swelled to as many as 5,000. Speaking briefly in Burmese, she said they would see each other again Sunday at the headquarters of her political party."
I bow to and honor her inspiring example. Seeing the admiration of the throngs for whom she is a symbol makes me teary.
