Aung San Suu Kyi Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech

This deserves its own thread.

Yesterday Aung San Suu Kyi finally received her Nobel Peace Prize 21 years after she was awarded it. That she is in Norway is an amazing event in itself. But it is not over. Burma has a long way to go, remember this is just a beginning.

I implore you spare 30 minutes to watch this.

That was beautiful.  :'(
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Corinthians 13: 4-7

I listened to this the other day.  The world needs more people like her.

The question is, will Burma now head toward becoming a truly democratic independent country, or will it become another PRC client state?  Chinese business interests still loom large there.
