The Lady Appears!--Show Your Support for Burma's Freedom Fighters

assk.jpg

I am so moved today by the events taking place in Burma, I want to ask you to join me in celebrating and supporting those involved. Here is an excerpt from today's BBC article titled, "Suu Kyi Greets Burma Protesters," plus useful links to updates and campaigns that support The Lady and her cause:

"At least 2,000 monks are staging a sixth day of protests through the streets of the main city of Rangoon.

Up to 10,000 marched through Mandalay with protests also taking place in five townships across Burma.

Apparently unable to hold her tears, Aung San Suu Kyi came out of the house she has been detained in since 2003 as the monks were let through a roadblock.

Witnesses said Ms Suu Kyi walked out with two other women and cried as she watched the monks and prayed with them but did not speak."

Thank you for posting this critical information. I, too, am so moved by the courage of the Burmese people. It fills me with hope that things can change.
