Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is the daughter of one of Burma’s most cherished heroes, the martyred General Aung San, who led his country’s fight for independence from Great Britain in the 1940s and was killed for his beliefs in 1947.

Children danced, monks meditated and after sustained applause Aung San Suu Kyi spoke to supporters for the first time in years. Burmese pro-democracy leader appears in front of cheering crowds after government barricades were swept away.

Some good news for a change and a reason for celebration.
