I hope that Aung San Syu Kyi wins this election in her constituency because she deserves it. I know that she is one person who has never asked what her country has done for her but has stuck with asking herself what she can do for her country just like her late father.
That she believes in democracy after so many years of suffering actually from a lack of it and therefore house arrest makes her my winner in so many ways. Aun San Syu Kyi always!
I am glad she has no fear. Aung Sang Syu Kyi will continue to inspire the world. She is incisive and deep. May Burma see her light. She will not lose her voice if the vote fails her but am waiting for the news without sleeping in a far away land. I shall celebrate her quietly always in my soul.
She wrote in her speech Freedom from Fear
"It is not power that corrupts but fear.. Fear of losing power corrupts those who wield it and fear of the scourge of power corrupts those who are subject to it. Most Burmese are familiar with the four a-gati, the four kind of corruption. Chanda-gati, corruption induced by desire, is deviation from the right path in pursuit of bribes or for the sake of those one loves. Dosa-gati is taking the worng path to spirte those against whom one bears ill will, and moha-gati is abberration due to ignorance. But perhaps the worst of the four is bhaya-gati, for not only does bhaya, fear, stifle and slowly destroy all sense of right and wrong, it so often lies at the root of the other three kinds of corruption. I wish we were all so analytical in our languages regarding corruption. I hope the whole world learns about the four agati!
If her votes are corrupted, may those who do so hear her words above again and again in their mother tongue! May these words haunt them all!
