Toward freedom in Myanmar

Adapted from an article originally appearing in The Christian Science Monitor.

News media around the world reported last month on the landslide victory of Myanmar’s pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi and her party, who won seats in parliament in a by-election.

Last year, after I had the privilege of visiting with Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi in Yangon through a mutual friend, I found that people not only adore her but also respect her as a symbol of a freer Myanmar (Burma). A taxi driver and our guide, as well as a server at a restaurant, tucked away a small photograph of her in their shirt pockets.
