Though I imagine it is hard to have a happy birthday while under house arrest. Today marks the 63rd birthday of non-violent Burmese activist and Nobel peace prize recepient, Aung San Suu Kyi (pronounced Aung Sawn Sue Chee). The world has become increasingly aware of the brutality of the Burmese dicatorship and of their repressive tactics and blatant disregard for the welfare of their people, but once again Burma has fallen away from the headlines. In honor of Suu Kyi’s birthday, I ask you to bring Burma and the plight of the Burmese people back into your hearts and minds, and visit the UScampaignforburma to read more about Aung San Suu Kyi, to stay informed about the current situation, and to learn about ways to help.
