Aung San Suu Kyi -- Happy belated birthday

19 June is Aung San Suu Kyi's birthday.

BBC Documentaries did a session on the eve of her birthday, worth listening. It is available here

"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. "

--Aung San Suu Kyi 1990

Read this speech of her, Freedom from Fear, if you are interested in finding out more of her.
