Agreeing …. & Prisons & Freedom

discussing Aung San Suu Kyi and her plan to reconnect with her people to learn what their needs, wants and hopes are and also to sit down at the table with the military govt to see if they can agree to disagree and find places of agreement. Also discusses Nelson Mandela and his refusal to carry with him bitterness and hatred over his lengthy, unjust, and unfair imprisonment which lasted over 20 years. He said if he walked out the gate of freedom with bitterness and hatred in his heart he would still be in prison

    I feel the same way you do about Aung San Suu Kyi, Nelson Mandela, and others who are our true role models as individuals who understand oppression, and their choice in how they view the fight. That is a key difference – holding onto the hatred, the crimes, injustices against us, keeps us in prison. You know that saying, “don’t get mad, get even”…in alignment with Mandela’s remarks, has more to do with opening ourselves up to see the big pix on the kind of positive changes we can make within our own scope of control, and such actions require patience and preserverence. The tit for tat is NOT justice. They are living proof! I’m no Mandela nor Suu Kyi, all I know is that I do strive towards the fight of the big pix of change we need to make for our community.

    Awesome vlog! I just love the people that fight with love. They tend not to give up and when captured tend to let their hearts grow bigger and bigger. I just love it!

    Keep up the awesome news.
