Newsweek: Ramos-Horta em entrevista

José Ramos-Horta, entrevistado por Joe Cochrane, diz que 'I'll be a moral force because I know many people look up to me. They listen.'

Da introdução: "Ten years ago, José Ramos-Horta was a painful pebble in Indonesia's shoe. The charismatic East Timorese intellectual earned a Nobel Peace Prize by trolling the halls of power in dozens of capitals around the world, telling anyone who'd listen that the former Portuguese colony was under a savage occupation. Now he's the establishment: last month, he was sworn in as the second president of independent East Timor (also known as Timor Leste). On June 4 he made his first state visit—to former foe Indonesia, which is now his friend and neighbor."

Ah, e cita Ted Kennedy's no discurso da Convenção Democrática de 1980: "The dream shall never die", querendo dizer, nas suas próprias palavras, que "When we have ideas, convictions and dreams, do not give up on them. Work on them and they can be realized."

Quando o homem sonha a obra nasce, como alguém dizia...
