Yoko: “Let’s go back to the future, you know. That’s why we’re here. We want to talk mainly to the young people all over the world, because those are the people who are going to be the next generation. They’re going to be the next world, you know, and we just want to say we are with them. We’re not preaching or anything like that. We want to be with them and we’re with them.”

Happy Birthday, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi!
Along with many others around the world, I was so happy to hear about your release from detention last November.

BAM! Suddenly the audience started to sing Happy Birthday to me right in the middle of the sing along GIVE PEACE A CHANCE! That was such a nice surprise. I was so unprepared for it, I don’t even remember if I had thanked the audience or not. Did I? There was so much love circulating, it didn’t seem necessary to say anything… We were family. The curtain went down after GIVE PEACE A CHANCE. Sean and I looked at each other. Sean’s eyes were twinkling. “You were great.” said Sean. “So were you.” It was a grand moment. We knew we had been witnesses to something that was bigger than both of us.
