I am saddened today about the actions of Burma's (Myanmar) military junta.
I watched the news with hope that the Buddhist monk's protest would continue but I feared that the military would......well....act like a military and crack down.
The monks, I am sure, knew what they would face by standing up to the government but protested anyway.
According to most reports the only way for the military to stop the monks was to actually detain them at their temples.
All I can do is hope that in the end few lives are lost and the people of Burma will have their democratically elected government instead of what they have now.
