As usual, TQ all of you again, Mr KJ John/Malaysiakini and wish to request forgiveness for using this article in Burmese context.

martin luther king 270508 “Yes, it is truly historic, and the UK newspaper headlines captured that sentiment, as did papers around the world. Nothing could change the image of America more than this. But it is more than historic; it is very personal for many of my generation. A new generation just sees this as natural – he’s an inspirational leader who happens to be black, which matters little to them.

“But for my generation – I’m dating myself now – this is a transformational moment, one we didn’t think would come in our lifetimes. Race was the issue that changed us, shaped us, determined our path, and even defined the meaning of our faith. Now a black man is running for president of the United States. Amazing grace.”

King-Obama’s dream comes true but Oh! Burma is still having Nightmares

King-Obama’s dream comes true

but

Oh! Burma is still having Nightmares

 

Congratulations Mr Obama for fulfilling the dreams of King or Martin Luther King Jr. We hereby wish that you could benevolently choose Mrs Hillary Clinton to be your Deputy running mate in the coming election.

For Oh! Burma, (or OLD BURMA) we are continuing the unfinished nightmare started by General Ne Win. We hope that there would be a blessing in disguise for our Burmese people. The present cyclone victims’ continuous suffering, SPDC’s blockage, hijacking and siphoning of the International aids combined with economic hardship because of SPDC’s mismanagement and global inflation/recession would fuel the dissatisfaction of Burmese and lead to another final revolt against SPDC and Myanm Military rulers.

Please don’t leave us, Burma alone Mr Obama.

In Burma Digest, as DR SAN OO AUNG
“Opening Heart on Equal Rights for All Ethnicities”

Last night, I fell asleep on the sofa while thinking to write a letter supporting the Burma’s Open Heart campaign. Earlier in the evening, I read the ‘I Have A Dream’ speech given by Martin Luther King in the August 1963. He had electrified America with his speech, given from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. And strangely I really dreamed a Burmanized dream almost exactly like King’s famous speech.

Last 60 years ago, in February 1947, all of the Ethnic groups in Burma had a dream to form the Union of Burma with the signing of the Panglon Agreement.

But their dreams changed to a dreadful nightmare under the successive Military rulers from Ne Win, Saw Maung and Than Shwe.

His Royal Highness Prince Hso Khan Pha also known as Tiger Yawnghwe, the eldest son of Sao Shwe Thaik, the former Saopha [Prince] of Yawnghwe [Nyaung-Shwe] and the first President of Burma after Burma’s Independence from British colonial rule said_

“Might I add that the problem that exists is not ethic “minority” rights versus the “majority” Burmese rights but rather of equality of rights for all? Continue reading
