    • Why do you think the leader took that course of action?Excerpts from letters written by Aung San Suu Kyi to her then ‘future husband’ Michael Aris: (8 months before they married) “I only ask one thing, that should my people need me, you would help me to do my duty by then.” “Would you mind very much should such a situation ever arise? How probable it is I do not know, but the possibility is there.” “Sometimes I am beset by fears that circumstances and national considerations might tear us apart just when we are so happy in each other that separation would be a torment. And yet such fears are so futile and inconsequential : if we love and cherish each other as much as we can while we can, I am sure love and compassion will triumph in the end.” Her Unconditional Love for the People of Burma
