Set yourself on fire to change the world.

It must demand the greatest will power.  It must demand selfless sacrifice.

To set yourself on fire to bring attention to injustice.

It still happens in our world in which we think everything is OK.  (BBC: Tibetan men in ‘first self-immolations in Lhasa’) We may not need to martyr ourselves though our political system is not free from autocratic methods.  Very sad.

I keep this image of a Thai student self-immolating against government corruption in 1990 to remind me of what other people do to make the world a better place:

Sitcom Church
Chuck Lorre Vanity Cards
