The saddest moment of my life as a blogger has been reporting and uploading the pictures of my monk friend, Ven. Silavamsa, who was killed in the September uprising. And for all the people who have shed their lives for the sake of democracy in Burma: one day democracy will be a reality. Change is the work of the earth. Nothing is permanent. The earth is always changing, and Burma will change to democracy.

My advice to the world's leaders is that all leaders should have kindness, without kindness the leaders are useless. So all leaders should consider how to heal "Burma disease" or how to cure the suffering of Burmese people. However, most world leaders are forgetting even the suffering of their own people. In fact, leaders are like lions and tigers, who are always hungry for another animal's meat.

Yes, yes, one day I plan to write a book and convert the blog into a book if offers come my way, maybe someday.

I hope that one day in my country, even the poor man will read the blogs and citizen journalism sites and they will replace the traditional media, and democracy will reign supreme in my country.
