Aung San Suu Kyi

After spending seven and one-half years under house arrest in her native Burma [Myanmar], Nobel Peace laureate has been released. For how long this time, no one knows, and under how many conditions placed upon her by the military junta, again we cannot be certain. Suu Kyi is truly a courageous person, and ranks as a prophet as well as a leading political hero of her country—for she has remained totally committed to peace with justice and democracy in Burma. The injustice of the political situation in Burma has been, and continues to be, an almost insurmountable challenge for the citizens of that nation who work for a democratic society through peaceful, non-violent means. May world opinion and the providence of God bear enough pressure on the present leadership of Burma to orchestrate a peaceful transition from the military junta to a true, properly elected democratic government. God bless and long live Aung San Suu Kyi! You can read mother corps’ article on Suu Kyi’s release here.
