This thread really warmed my heart. The concern you show to a virtual stranger and the empathy to their struggle is frankly bringing me to tears. Thank you for showing me the good side of humanity during this difficult time.
I wish everyone a safe, happy and healthy 2022.
As for Burma, our civil war is heating up. There are daily massacres from the army (burning people alive, torturing them to death, air strikes on villages, arrests of doctors/nurses, arrests of family members of suspected rebels etc.) but now the entire country is either in active revolt (training in the jungles and conducting partisan operations in loosely organized cells) or doing their best to survive the chaos. There has been many bombings and assassinations against the junta and despite their propaganda machine (which worked in the past as many Burmese had no idea how brutal the army actually was) going full strength, no one is believing their BS.
Basically we as a country and as a society are at a crossroads. Some of us still wish (vainly) for foreign intervention but many of us are now fighting and dying for our right to self-determine.
Thanks again for the messages of support and general kindness. It is greatly appreciated.
