When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I feel the pain in the world
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Our Planet, Violence, Human Rights
So what is it?
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
The People of Burma are suffering every single day. They are hunted by the Junta and people are tortured, Jailed, Killed. There's hunger in Burma. People have no shelter. They are not protected against the violent army.

Burma is the most religious Buddhist country in terms of proportion of monks in the population and proportion of income spent on religion. Monks are treasured and revered by the Burmese community.

Burma is ruled by one of the most brutal regimes in the World. This was brought sharply to the world’s attention by the Saffron Revolution in September ’07. Tragically, many people where killed, jailed or went missing. Many monks where killed and many disappeared from the face of the earth forever ...and the world stood by and did nothing....

In Thai / Burma border region there are more than 10 refugee camps. These camps are occupied by more than 300,000 people. The Burmese army attacks its own people, burning down villages almost every day. Villagers on the run get shot or they are killed by landmines. Refugees who live in the jungle have nothing. Mothers, fathers, babies, children and elderly people live in fear of the junta army. People are arrested and forced into hard labour by the Junta. Civilians are used as minesweepers by the army. The army takes young children out of their schools to be soldiers for the Junta. In Burma there are more then 70,000 child soldiers.

In Burma there are more then 2000 political prisoners. People are been given long term jail sentences. Prisoners are being tortured and killed by the Junta. The most famous of these noble political prisoners, is Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. She won the Burmese presidential elections but has been under house arrest for almost 19 years.

Then there was the cyclone "Nargis'... which killed more than a 100,000 people. Thousands went missing but the Junta would not let any aid into the country.

Burma is in crisis. The UN is silent, The USA is silent, The EU is silent. ...the Junta continues killing its own people.

This is why Candle4burma has been created. May our candles create enough light to wake the world up to the suffering of the people of Burma. May the candles burn till the day Burma is free.

Please support this Network and encourage your friends and family participate in Candle4burma. Please do your bit to bring awareness to the world about this tragedy of our fellow human beings


Thank you and many blessings

Nowhere to Hide

They are constantly running and hiding from the Burmese army. One 62-year-old Karen man said he believed he had fled in fear more than 100 times in his life. They build makeshift shelters in the jungle wherever they can and plant fields that might never see a harvest. With only the clothes on their backs and a few tools in their hands, they build schoolhouses from bamboo and try to give their children an education. More than anything, the Internally Displaced People… Continue

Hi friend!
I am looking for the icon to find the link that I can share on the web..
Please help me.

I found it interesting when Laura Bush was asked last week (can't recall which reporter was asking the questions)- what was her biggest regret in the last 8 years. Her reply was that she never got to visit a free Burma.
Again- great site!!

I was sent to this world. Because the voices where head. There is no voice that cries out in the wilderness.
There is no voice that is silenced in the furnaces.
There is no voice that falls as silent tears in prisons.
There is no voice of peace that screams out in pain that is NOT HEARD.
By the creator of all things real.
No single day goes by I am not aware.
And as I am fighting now for ALL life on this earth.
There is no nation that shouts to me and holds my heart as does BURMA!

An American who needs no media, to hear the voices of the people of peace.
At 9:00pm on January 11, 2009, Tree Thunderchild said…
Blessings to you!
Please know that while my voice is not often heard, the voices of those of peace scream out to me through the skies.
The people are heard, by that which created me and a HUGE reason why I was sent to this world.
I may not shout, but I hear loudly, and carry with me EVERY SINGLE DAY BURMA.
I work hard, with them in my heart and mind and soul.
I do not speak much nor often of the people, it is not words that will matter more than actions.
I work hard to be more able to act.
So I may seem silent, but it is with busy hands.
Of ALL nations, Burma shines BRIGHTLY in the eyes of the creator of all things.
And so too does in this mans!
I watch, I listen, I feel, and work in ways many would not call real or solid because they cannot be touched by human hands.
I do not seek to destroy the destroyers of peace, I seek to heal them of the sickness that allows them to do these things to others.
I do not fight on the level of evil.
I fight by my rules not its.
But I FIGHT, with all that I am.
But also I must fight for all life on this earth.....
But Burma is in my heart, prayers and mind EVERY SINGLE DAY!
