Pia’s Competition no.6

Pia’s competition continues! Here is the latest photo. Dad, you can give your answer now.

Little Owl and I were listening to the Reith Lectures this morning as we did the washing up. As you may already know this year’s lecture was being delivered by the Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi. She brought tears to my eyes when she spoke of why she is committed to non-violence. She separated herself from the ideological stance of other proponents of non-violence such as Ghandi and Martin Luther King. She explained that for Burma non-violent regime change is the only thing that makes sense in order to break the historical cycle of  violent regime change and violent governance. She floored me with her clarity and dignity. Well done BBC. Totally brilliant.
