“I was a product of flawed love and wasn’t worth staying for… After being abandoned, hurt, battered, abused and taken advantage of on every level imaginable, God has spoken a deep truth to me that I could have only learned through this heartache… My God, my Saviour pursues me. He loves me and loves to see me laugh and smile. He is filled with pride when I make wise decisions through Him and He is constantly trying to woo me into a deep love with Himself. Jesus brings butterflies when I am feeling down and sunsets for no reason at all but to whisper he loves me.”
“You have to be in love truly, madly, deeply
and then you can call it real love…
Millions of people who know how to love
please clap your hands of gilded gold and laugh out loud.”
-San Wai, “February 14,” a poem for which the author was imprisoned. The first words of every line of this poem in Burmese read, “Than Shwe is foolish with power,”referring to the man who has headed the Junta since 1992.
“I don’t care too much for money,
