PostSiegfried Ramler Meets Aung San Suu Kyi (Siegfried Ramler, USA, 01/27/13 4:45 am)
On 25 January I attended a session with Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi held at the Asia Pacific Center for Security Studies. She presented in impeccable English, with remarkable poise and bearing. In the audience were residents of the Burmese community in Hawaii, as well as individuals engaged in Asia-Pacific issues.
Finally free after decades of house arrest, she is now an eloquent spokeswoman on behalf of democracy and free elections in Burma, a transition from autocracy to an open society, perhaps the beginning of a "Burma Spring." No doubt she will continue to represent one of the leading voices in Asia.
JE comments: Any chance you got a photo with Ms. Suu Kyi, Siegfried? If so, I'd love to post it to WAIS: Two Great Communicators.
I did a Google search to find out what Aung San Suu Kyi's "surname" is. It turns out that Burmese do not have them; "Ms./Dr. Suu Kyi" is a Western convention. See the "name" section of ASSK's Wikipedia bio:
