Athein and Zaw Min htwe will reach to New York in next 40 days
Athein and Zaw min htwe resting somewhere in Ohio state . We will update their news daily in next two days. Thanks for visiting our blog and web site .
I got to meet Athein and Zaw min htwe today. They were walking a few miles outside of the town I work in (Ottawa, OH). I had seen them the day before when I was driving home from work and was confused at first to who they were. Today I went to my job as a news reporter and my editor told me to go interview them. Athein and Zaw min htwe are two very motivated men and I wish them all the best on the final leg of their journey to NYC. A small article will be on our Web site tonight (www.putnamsentinel.com) about the two men and a much larger article will be in our paper and on our site next Wednesday (June 25, 2008).
Thank you for the opportunity to write such an interesting story on such a noble cause!
