We miss the face of Burma.
We miss our nations mother.
Help us to see her again.
Help us to see our hope again.
Free the voice of Burma
Free the lady. Free Aung San Suu Kyi. Free our leader that stood with us since the beginning of our democratic transition. She stands as a symbol of hope for us in our struggle for freedom. She has called us to face our fears when she faced her fears and chose to stick with us.
Aung San Suu Kyi is not just a leader figure here in the country, but an icon of peace outside the country. She represents the country and brings meaning to the country. When people hear Myanmar, they don't understand or know about it. When they hear Aung San Suu Kyi, they know Myanmar as an association to her. She doesn't need the country to bring meaning to her life. She already had a life full of meaning, she had her own goals and aspirations. She was a mother, a wife, a friend to many.
She didn't need to be defined by the country. However, we need her. We need her to be able to express ourselves into the world. We need a voice strong enough that she has for our voices to echo through hers. And with this being said, the Worldwide Burmese Students will stand defiantly against the military coup by standing for the Lady. She doesn't need us. We need her.
Who is Daw Aung San Suu Kyi?
Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is a person whom most Burmese people addressed as ‘Mother Suu.’ People seldom wondered the reason behind Burmese people’s seemingly blind trust to follow her leadership wholeheartedly.
Born on June 19, 1945, in Yangon, Myanmar (Rangoon, Burma). She is the daughter of General Aung San, the national hero of Burmese independence, and Daw Khin Kyi, a prominent Burmese diplomat. Her first sacrifice as a daughter of a national hero was on July 19, 1947, the day when General Aung San was assassinated. She was two years and one month old.
