LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Awe-inspiring Suu Kyi
After spending 15 years under house arrest and not even letting the death of her husband come between her and her passionate fight for Burma democracy, there is little doubt that Aung San Suu Kyi chose the road less traveled (“Suu Kyi to make bittersweet return to Oxford,” Web, Sunday).
At long last, though, the fruits of Ms. Suu Kyi’s labor have paid off. The strength, courage and determination she has demonstrated is an inspiration to all and will no doubt continue to inspire future generations.
