Burma Valentine

On Valentine’s Day, Wan and I ventured to Jackson Heights to spend the afternoon with some wonderful folks at Burma Point.  They were holding a memorial service for General Mahn Sha, a Karen Leader, who was assasinated last year at the Thai Burma Border.   Honoring him were Win Khet, part of the National League for Democracy (Liberated Area),  Peter Lin Bin, member of the Parliament union, and the burmese literary scholar Maung Swan Yi.
