ms. aung san suu kyi + sec. clinton

Wow! Angels.

An incredibly powerful, paradigm-changing moment. This simple handshake between two extraordinary women is the antithesis of the very disturbing, very questionable, "pre-emptive" Halliburton U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003. The historic (herstoric?) image above reminds me of the "feel good" Bill Clinton Presidency. It is a visual that helps heal the collective human psyche. Personally, it gives me renewed respect and admiration for the Great American Nation. A nation which in its very recent past has -- at times -- seemed alarmingly hijacked by its lowest common denominator.

It only gets better.
