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.
