Happy Birthday Aung San Suu Kyi 06/18/1945

It is a rare thing to be feared by a regime of military leaders. A steely gaze, the hard look of determination upon a face, the desire to change the way a country has been run for years. To be 5’ 4” tall and be a female in a world of hardened Junta and strike fear in the same is a feat not many have done. Aung San Suu Kyi is just such a person. Her beautiful face carries a look that belies her strength. She will be 65 on this day and I want to wish her a blessed and beautiful birthday. For her gift, I wish her freedom, freedom to continue with her life’s mission to bring a voice to the people of Myanmar, (formally Burma) the right to a democratic choice in their lives.

To me she is a person I wish to be like. To carry on my convictions to the best of my ability, to look neither back nor waver in my beliefs. To be strong in the face of adversity, to meet my enemies with my back held straight and my heart strong. To fight for the voices which have been silenced by those who would rule with an iron fist. I cannot free her, but I can give my voice for her and demand her freedom. I can give of myself to the cause that many share with me. I wear a bracelet in her honor; I wear my shirt with her face on it with pride and tell everyone her story in the hopes of raising awareness of her plight.

Happy Birthday Aung San Suu Kyi!!!
