“As spiritual and political beings we are all activists at heart. No one is outside of society…It’s about our freedom. That means everybody. We must see that nothing and no one is separate from this freedom. No one is an island in this world.”

Aung San Suu Kyi, excerpted from ``The Voice of Hope``
