Would I sacrifice my life (or some numbers of it) for the sake of others freedom & rights?
Leaders like Suu Kyi, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Mother Theresa and others (let us not forget the great Prophets of many religions), have sacrificed if not their lives then a good number of it in the name of freedom, rights, and enlightenment. They are as human as anyone of us. The leaders I had mentioned were leaders of different religions and nationalities, yet they had one “great” thing in common… Faith.
The great leaders of humanity lead lives that were & are nothing short of struggle. Each one demonstrated patience through many tests. Each one was and is tested through abuse, both physical and emotional. Yet, each leader conveyed their mission with dignity, patience and faith envisioning light at the end of the tunnel. Embarking their mission as unknowing individuals, they succeeded by spreading the seeds of wisdom which will continue to blossom generation after generation. The universe will echo their spirit for light years to come… And yet, they are as human as you and I…
By unlocking the treasure deep within their heart, the leaders of humanity, such as Suu Kyi, understand Faith. They do not let fear overcome their faith; and it is/was their faith that had brought HOPE, justice and happiness to the lives of so many.
