A tribute to Aung San Suu Kyi " the Lady of Rangoon " ,and to the Burmese People

  

~She is in Paris for 3 days~

 

Aung San Suu Kyi was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991

In awarding the Nobel Peace Prize for 1991 to Aung San Suu Kyi, the Norwegian Nobel Committee wishes to honour this woman for her unflagging efforts and to show its support for the many people throughout the world who are striving to attain democracy, human rights and ethnic conciliation by peaceful means.

 

On 16 June 2012, Aung San Suu Kyi was finally able to deliver her Nobel acceptance speech at Oslo's City Hall, two decades after being awarded the peace prize

 

She is a true inspiring leader who has sacrificed her personal life for the sake of her country, and has never given up fighting for her people despite very harsh times.

“If you're feeling helpless, help someone. ”

“The only real prison is fear, and the only real freedom is freedom from fear”

― Aung San Suu Kyi ( in Freedom from Fear)

Gracias a la vida que me ha dado tanto

me dio dos luceros que cuando los abro

perfecto distingo lo negro del blanco

y en el alto cielo su fondo estrellado

y en las multitudes el hombre que yo amo.

 

Gracias a la vida, que me ha dado tanto

me ha dado el oido que en todo su ancho

graba noche y dia grillos y canarios

martillos, turbinas, ladridos, chubascos

y la voz tan tierna de mi bien amado.

 

Gracias a la vida que me ha dado tanto

me ha dado el sonido y el abedecedario

con él las palabras que pienso y declaro

madre amigo hermano y luz alumbrando,

la ruta del alma del que estoy amando.

 

Gracias a la vida que me ha dado tanto

me ha dado la marcha de mis pies cansados

con ellos anduve ciudades y charcos,

playas y desiertos montañas y llanos

y la casa tuya, tu calle y tu patio.

 

Gracias a la vida que me ha dado tanto

me dio el corazón que agita su marco

cuando miro el fruto del cerebro humano,

cuando miro el bueno tan lejos del malo,

cuando miro el fondo de tus ojos claros.

 

Gracias a la vida que me ha dado tanto

Me ha dado la risa y me ha dado el llanto

Así yo distingo dicha de quebranto,

Los dos materiales que forman mi canto,

Y el canto de ustedes que es mi mismo canto,

Y el canto de todos que es mi propio canto

Gracias a la vida que me ha dado tanto

Thanks to life, which has given me so much.

It gave me two stars, which when I open them,

Perfectly distinguish black from white

And in the tall sky its starry backdrop,

And within the multitudes the one that I love.

 

Thanks to life, which has given me so much.

It gave me hearing that, in all of its reach

Records night and day crickets and canaries,

Hammers and turbines, bricks and storms,

And the tender voice of my beloved.

 

Thanks to life, which has given me so much.

It gave me sound and the alphabet.

With them the words I think and declare:

“Mother,” “Friend,” “Brother” and light shining down on

The road of the soul of the one I'm loving.

 

Thanks to life, which has given me so much.

It gave me the steps of my tired feet.

With them I have traversed cities and puddles

Valleys and deserts, mountains and plains.

And your house, your street and your garden.

 

Thanks to life, which has given me so much.

It gave me this heart that shakes its frame,

When I see the fruit of the human brain,

When I see good so far from evil,

When I look into the depth of your light eyes…

 

Thanks to life, which has given me so much.

It gave me laughter and it gave me tears.

With them I distinguish happiness from pain

The two elements that make up my song,

And your song, as well, which is the same song.

And everyone’s song, which is my very song.

Merci à la vie qui m'a tant donné

Elle m'a donné deux étoiles qui, quand je les ouvre,

Me font distinguer parfaitement le noir du blanc

Et, dans les hauteurs du ciel, la voûte étoilée

Et, dans les multitudes, l'homme que j'aime

 

Merci à la vie qui m'a tant donné

Elle m'a donné l'ouïe qui, dans toute sa portée,

Enregistre nuit et jour grillons et canaris,

Marteaux et turbines, aboiements et averses,

Et la voix si tendre de mon bien-aimé

 

Merci à la vie qui m'a tant donné

Elle m'a donné le son et l'alphabet;

Et avec lui, les mots que je pense et déclare:

Mère, ami, frère et lumière éclairant

La route de l'âme de celui que j'aime

 

Merci à la vie qui m'a tant donné

Elle m'a donné la marche de mes pieds fatigués;

Avec eux j'ai foulé villes et flaques d'eau,

Plages et déserts, montagnes et plaines,

Et ta maison, ta rue et ton patio

 

Merci à la vie qui m'a tant donné

Elle m'a donné le coeur qui agite son cadre

Quand je regarde le fruit du cerveau humain,

Quand je regarde le bien si loin du mal,

Quand je regarde le fond de tes yeux clairs

 

Merci à la vie qui m'a tant donné

Elle m'a donné le rire et elle m'a donné le pleur

Ainsi je distingue le bonheur de la détresse,

Les deux matériaux qui forment mon chant,

Et votre chant qui est mon propre chant,

Et le chant de tous qui est mon propre chant

Merci à la vie qui m'a tant donné
