Inspiration: Aung San Suu Kyi - Release

Aung San Suu Kyi is recently released from her house arrest. I am extremely happy to hear that. She is such an inspiration - giving up so much in life for democracy and peace in Myanmar. She could easily lived a comfortable life outside of Myanmar, yet she chose to return to her homeland. Her strength and resilience is amazing.
Visited Myanmar back in 2008, and it is the best country to visit in South-East Asia. The Burmese are great people and they deserve to have peace and good life.
History has shown us that violence and brutality will never win the hearts of people. Tyrants (like the Burmese Junta) will never last. There are inherent flaws in using force and violence, and systems built on fear will eventually collapse. Ultimately, the good values would triumph - equality, democracy, fairness, freedom etc...
Aung San Suu Kyi is the beacon of hope for Myanmar.
