Burmese exile groups have launched a website called “64 for Suu” and invited celebrities, politicians and members of the public to send a 64-word birthday message to Ms Suu Kyi.
Here are my 64 words for Suu:
Happy 64th Birthday, admirable woman. Your voice and resolve inspire so many people. The unjust imprisonment of you and other illegally incarcerated prisoners of conscience has to end, not just in your country but around the world. May this be your last birthday in detention. May your struggles to bring democracy to your home country soon reap a happy harvest.
