An open statement to Aung San Suu Kyi and the Burmese people

I can imagine how Aung San Suu Kyi feels.

As a parent I can relate to how she feels when seeing her son again. It must be hard (this is an understatement) but it is doing is for her country, for her people, for freedom. And I admire her, her son and the Burmese for that.

Her release may bring joy to her supporters for now but the fight isn’t over. For Burma is still in the clutches of a brutal totalitarian regime. She knows this and still chooses to stay to fight. That is truly courageous.

I pray for her and for the people of Burma.
