Aung Naing Oo recalls shooting small birds with a catapult in Burma.

Good one ANO, mainly because of its honesty.

Multiply this thousands of times for all of us that make up The Burmese Diaspora.

On my last visit to Thailand a few months ago, a young lady the age of a grandchild suddenly came up to me while all her classmates were singing and dancing and said,
"Don't worry Sayama, you will get to go home."

I thanked her the next day when it was quieter.

Frankly, now I don't care. I've asked my family to strew my ashes in the Atlantic.

There's a beach I am particularly fond of for its wildness.
