I first studied Burma when I was a freshman in high school. Burma was the topic in policy debate that I dreaded the most; just thinking about it put me on the verge of tears. Even today, I find it utterly impossible to say anything rational about the situation there.
Much of humanity is sustained through its daily misery by the hope that evil can be defeated without resorting to evil. We all hope that somehow, someone will figure out a way.
If I believed in God, I would pray for Burma.
