Perhaps the world’s most famous political prisoner, Aung San Suu Kyi has been released by Burma’s military led regime. This is good news. This is a woman of great fortitude. She spent much of the past 20 years under house arrest, incommunicado from the outside world, and with no contact with anyone other than her maids. She won the Nobel Peace Prize while in detention and heard about winning it while listening to radio (one of her only luxuries while detained). Her husband died while she was in detention.
Great collection of photos from her album:
