I’m deeply sadden by the recent events that happened in Myanmar. I’m more sadden by the fact that this has to happen in the first place.
Lives were lost, blood shed. All because the Government doesn’t give a shit of what the people wants. And finally, it happened – The Saffron Revolution.
This is pure example of what would go wrong if the government doesn’t do what the people wants. Removing the subsidies on fuel (where the money comes from the people itself) and increasing fuel price as much as 500% ? Even the monks can’t stand it anymore! We need V …
People shouldn’t be afraid of their government, government should be afraid of their people.
The Junta might argue that Myanmar, like every other country in the world, decides the means to operate itself.
But what kind of moral values are we instilling into their future generations? That violence is the ultimate solution to all our problems? When all else fails we still have our guns and batons in our hands? That we can force submission and ignore the freedom of will?
Its like beating a child to do what you want them to do that YOU THINK is good for them. Or worse, because they don’t obey you.
Doesn’t work that way. That’s why I don’t believe in child beating 🙂
I think Myanmarese are in a mixed emotions now. They are sad because their beloved country and homeland are in chaos, but they are also happy because this is the country’s best chance of revolution demanding democracy since the Aung San Suu Kyi uprising in 1988.
I pray that no one else is getting hurt. I pray that Myanmar will restore its peace. I pray that the people in Myanmar gets what they deserve. And may God bless all people in Myanmar. Amen.
