1) The Revolution of Spirit stood out the most to me. This woman had been incarcerated for 15 years and chose to give up her family to not be exiled from her country. She stood up for peace and practiced non-violence and received the Nobel Prize while being incarcerated. She says "The quest for democracy in Burma is the struggle of a people to live whole, meaningful lives as free and equal members of the world community. It is part of the unceasing human endeavor to prove that the spirit of a man can transcend the flaws of his nature." She was released from detention in 2010 and now aims to become the president of post-reform Myanmar.
2) Malaysia airlines flight 370. The plane
went missing last month after what is thought to be the pilot signed off
and said good night. It then went off course and still today hasn't
been found. Currently they are having planes and ships and now subs
going down to the Indian Ocean floor to try and pick up pings from the
box before the black box runs out of battery. Nothing has been detected
yet. My hope is that they will find this plane and have some information
that may help the families of the passengers get some closure. We
should care because these are people we are talking about, we should
care about all man kind and their well being. It is our allies out there
attempting to find this missing plane. America should do it's part and
aiding the victims of this tragic accident.
