For me, religious festivals and celebrations have become an important way to teach my children about how we can transform living with diversity from the superficial 'I eat ethnic food', to something dignified, mutually respectful and worthwhile.
We live in a world of communication - everyone gets information about everyone else.

I like Mitt Romney as a person. I think he's a dignified person. But I have no common ground on economics. He doesn't worry about the Federal Reserve. He doesn't worry about foreign policy.

I don't want to see the military falling. I want to see the military rising to dignified heights of professionalism and true patriotism.
Aung San Suu Kyi
