At long last, Burma has a chance to show the world they can fight for freedom and pride and true democracy. Aung san Suu Yi is a prime example of how one person can make a difference and can bring about a change for the better to an entire nation.
Unlike the Arab Springs, this change is real and therefore it is so heartening for not only the Burmese people but for freedom loving people around the world. From now on, I can see only good things happening in that country.
....Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi met Sunday with Karen ethnic minority rebels in her first significant foray into politics since her election to public office a week earlier.
The Nobel Peace Prize laureate, who won her first-ever seat in parliament in April 1 by-elections, held about two hours of talks with delegates from the Karen National Union in Yangon.
The National League for Democracy (NLD) leader described the meeting as a "significant event" that would help to foster national reconciliation.
She added: "As the NLD's goal is to have true democratic unity, we believe all ethnicities should be included in this process together.".....
