HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUNG SAN SUU KYI
Originally uploaded by Ennor.
We are celebrating you birthday all over the world. We, the citizens of the world. We, free citizens of the free world. We who love you. And we who want to use our liberty to promote yours and your people’s. We are celebrating your 61st birthday, Aunty Suu.
Although we are celebrating your birthday, we cannot be really happy because we know that you may not even know that we are doing it for you, as you are kept under total incommunicado detention without any contact to the outside world.
The Blogger at Noblesse Oblige urges us to remember Aung San Suu Kyi's sacrifice
For the most remarkable part of this sad tale is that Suu Kyi refuses to leave her prison until Burma is free again. The junta would be happy to have her gone, and has offered her personal freedom if she will go into exile, but like Joan of Arc, Suu Kyi knows that there are things bigger than herself; things like freedom and democracy.
In time the junta hopes people will forget about Aung San Suu Kyi, and forget about freedom and democracy. That is a thing that will never happen. So think of Suu Kyi on her birthday, and wish her well.
