The sorrow of the world

A friend once told me that he doesn't keep track of world events because they're so depressing sometimes. Yeah, I know how that feels. The recent news about Burma.
A couple days ago I was heralding a new dawn for democracy in Burma (Myanmar), but now... Now we're seeing the repression in its purest form. And it looks like it will be successful. I'm hoping something will break. I'm hoping maybe one of the military rulers of the country will look into his conscience and see how wrong this is. I'm hoping for a miracle. And I'm praying.
But I'm also carrying sorrow, because as things are looking now, it will be a good while before Burma is free.
