Thank you very much for your speech in Myanmar. I am so proud you are our President for this very moment. Because of your speech, that has become the greatest encouragement for the future of our country. Mr. President, please do not leave Burma in the hands of the generals. We need your guidance and support. Thank you very much for your belief and for your honorable, remarkable and heartily speech that gives the rays of hope, freedom, and good things like the rising of the sun. I hope this speech will push Aung San Suu Kyi to finally talk about the political issues on the ethnics groups.
Very well-spoken and balanced speech! I felt that it was very appropriate that you chose the University of Yangon (Rangoon) for your public speech in Burma. I liked the four basic points for democracy, whilst sharing your personal experiences. I thought your beliefs, ideas and philosophies in your speech seemed to be identical to Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s. Your speech showed your best of the free world leader. I salute you as the commander-in-chief of the world’s greatest military. No one can provide democracy. It must be fought beginning within one’s soul. With many Bama living in Western countries still holding bias and prejudice towards the Muslims, must first be rid off if this society is to transform.
Like you’ve said, diversity is strength and the Barmars need to understand and seize that strength rather than trying to dominate other minority groups. Burmese people should consider themselves lucky that it is the President of the Greatest Nation in the World, the United States of America, not just any, who gave the speech because you are one President with a very diverse background. So, thank you, once again, for your words of compassion and encouragement. We can’t express how much it means to us. Your words are priceless. We feel stronger by just watching your speech. Moreover, I’d like to express my appreciation to all of the high officials of the United States. God bless America! “Freedom of worship”, in your own famous words. May Allah bless you and your family.
