Our Friday Women’s Corner program briefly interviewed 1976 Nobel Peace Laureate from Northern Ireland , Ms. Mairead Macguire who sent her birthday wishes to fellow Nobel Laureate Daw Aung San Suu Kyi on her 58th. birthday . She said, “ We want to wish her a very happy birthday , 19th. of June. But I’m sure the best birthday present that Suu will ever get is when she sees the peace process begin in Burma.”
Ms. Macguire also said ,”We want to tell her we support her and love her very much. Many people around the world are inspired and encouraged by her tremendous perseverance, dedication for human rights and democracy in Burma.”
As Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s birthday is also designated as Women of Burma Day by Burmese women abroad the following book titled "Burma ~ Women's Voices Together", a collection of 39 short stories and articles from women of diverse backgrounds in Burma is being released by B’Kok-based Alt-Asean in time for her birthday.
The foreword “A Foundation of Enduring Strength”, written by Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is a strong reminder of the aspirations of the peoples of Burma for genuine peace and reconciliation. Her foreword was incorporated in our Women’s Corner program.
