One of the three most closed and isolated countries in the world is opening up. The long-repressed Burmese say it's unbelievable - but they want to believe in a new Myanmar.

If they stop the killing ! Let the political prisoners free ! Really putting The Lady in a bad spot, it is very touchy and she is being careful. Last time she started winning they tried to kill her!!!!!!!! So really keeping her out front in News for the World to watch and keep an eye on her for her safety!

Thanks Cal, nice article. Hope so, but I think there has to be more change for that to really happen.

A few years ago, I had to pleasure of meeting two women who managed to escape from a forced labor camp in Myanmar. Their stories were heartbreaking. One of them had lost her husband while imprisoned in the camp and had to leave her mother and children there when she managed to escape. She's now in this country working two jobs in order to earn enough money to secure their release and bring them to this country. Their stories were heartbreaking, and I had no doubt that they were true. I hope these people finally get the freedom and respect that they deserve.
