I salute the musician and his sister for their bravery.
Yes, a salute goes out to all the brave Myanmar citizens protesting the tatmadaw’s grab on democratic power.
Yet, I do wonder how long these brave souls can hold on, granted the military indiscriminate use of power.
But I must admit, the tenacity and bravery of the Myanmar protestors surprised me – I had expected the demonstrations to dissipate in the face of the military’s indiscriminate fire power. I can but pray that divine intervention will help the protestors.
Look at the ASEAN leaders in Jakarta – they are a disgrace. When they can bring some power to bear on the Myanmese military leader, they let him go scott free (well, at least to me)
