Aung San Suu Kyi is a name that we have heard repeatedly in the news lately. We were honored to present a video address from Aung San Suu Kyi during the closing ceremony of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize Forum, during which she discussed peace and democracy, in her native Burma and worldwide. She also discussed this year’s theme, The Price of Peace, which she herself paid with her freedom. She was under house arrest almost 15 of the 21 years from July 20, 1989 until her release on November 13, 2010. Aung San Suu Kyi was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991 for her non-violent struggle for advancement of human rights and democracy in Burma. She has recently been elected to a seat on parliament in her home nation, another step she is taking to further peace and democracy. For good reason, Aung San Suu Kyi has been called a symbol of hope. She has, and continues to make a positive impact for global society and we are all inspired to have her in the ranks of the Nobel Peace Prize Laureates.
