Fighting for Burma -- Part 2
|by Jason Bruce|
The situation reminded me of what Martin Luther King Jr. wrote on his Letter from a Birmingham Jail:
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutually, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. Never again can we afford to live with the narrow provincial outside agitator idea.
Although MLK wrote this with Americans in mind, his words are still true for all, especially us Christians who are mandated by God to help protect and preserve the world in need. Wherever we are, we now cannot consider ourselves outsiders from other nation’s affairs and needs for democracy and peace.
In connection with this, I searched the Internet for information on Burmese Christians' participation in the pro-democracy rallies, but I can't find any (or maybe I'm looking in the wrong places). If anyone knows any updates or personal stories of Burmese Christians, and how they are dealing and getting involved with the demonstrations, please share it with us here on The Point.
