Courageous Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi marks birthday still under house arrest

Fred Hiatt: “In Burma today, more than 2,000 dissidents and democrats are in prison, often in gruesome conditions, without any expectation of White House statements or Nobel honors. If she could speak publicly, Aung San Suu Kyi might well dedicate her birthday to them — and to the “small, daily acts of courage” that most of us, taking our freedom for granted, can hardly imagine.”
