Traveling through vast northern Burma I was continually aware of the cultural differences facing me in this part of the world all but shut off from western civilization until less than 10 years ago. How surprised was I to find this group of young buddhists doing the same thing my 9 year old brother was probably doing half a world away. Our connected world is a window to a future where we understand and live among differences instead of fighting against them.
