Well, I don't trust the Military Junta, that's for sure - not for a second.
They are nothing but a bunch of murderers, and they have been in power since 1962.
So, let's not hold our breath...

When I was working, I had the opportunity to interview several individuals who had fled forced labor camps in Myanmar and came to this country to find jobs and earn enough money to buy their families' freedom. It was heartbreaking that they had left behind their children, spouses and parents and worked two jobs in order to secure their release and bring them to this country. Some of them had lost family members to illness and abuse and were desperate to earn enough money to bring the remaining family members here before they met with the same fate. They were so grateful for the opportunity to come here, to work, and for the support they received from the community. I got the impression that they were going to make wonderful citizens. They valued their new-found freedom so much and were so appreciative of their new American friends. I hope things improve in Myanmar. These are lovely, proud and hard-working people who deserve much better!

The lady is a personal hero of mine. Her reasoned, calm assessment of possible progress is hopeful, but not giddily unrealistic. And I LOVED Bishop Tutu's comment, and her response! He's another hero of mine; I got to see him once, not to meet him. I was just one of hundreds at a gathering. His enthusiasm is so infectious!
