I'm currently feelin: cold cold
I'm currently hearin: Bono & Gavin Friday- Children of the Revolution

Hey guys! A lot of you probably found and read this already, but for all people in the US who get the PARADE magazine in their sunday newspaper theres this beautiful essay written by Aung San Suu Kyi, who "Walk On" is written about. It really hit me..i was crying by the end thinking about all she did, all she sacrificed for her country, and i kept on thinking about Walk On, how it was about "leaving someone you love for the right reasons" according ot Bono. It was moving..just thought you all might be interested if you haven't seen it already. No direct U2 mention, but thats okay. What an amazing person.

i saw it, but haven't had a chance to read it. but i definitely will, i've been keeping track of what's been going on in burma/myanmar for a while. you know, there was actually an A&E biography contest for high school students last year, and i decided to write about her...she's really just an amazing person. i also remember watching something..maybe two years ago on one of those abc/cbs/nbc nighttime news specials...about how she's married to an englishman i think, but she's chosen to remain in burma FOR her people. RIGHT ON to her :)

What a moving essay....
I didn't know about her husband, and how he wasn't allowed back into the country before he died of cancer. How sad..
