Aung San Suu Kyi: Peaceful freedom fighter

September 19th, 2012
02:41 PM ET

(CNN) - The election of Aung San Suu Kyi to Myanmar's parliament capped a remarkable turnaround for the pro-democracy campaigner, who was kept under house arrest for a total of 15 years by the country's military junta.

Suu Kyi was born in 1945, the daughter of Myanmar independence hero General Aung San - a man almost universally respected in the country, including the top ranks of the omnipresent military.

She was only two years old when her father was assassinated as the country, then known as Burma, prepared to transfer from British colonial rule. Her mother, Khin Kyi, became an active figure in the newly independent nation, eventually winning ambassadorial posts in India and Nepal. ((FULL PROFILE))

    I've always been intrigued about this subject and I am planning on doing more investigating on the subject some day soon. Reading your blog is way better than kissing. Sure is a lot of things to ponder. There's a few possible reasons for this occurring.

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
