  1. Oh my, I am so happy for you guys. You did it. I am sorry I could not help more, but I did all I could. You two are true heros.

  2. You guys are still in our hearts and minds each day and my five year old son goes around singing “Freedom” by Paul McCartney in honor of Burmese struggling for a taste of the freedom we have here at home.

    Athein, you and Zaw have had a huge impact on our lives and make us appreciate each day more. I cannot thank you enough or let you know what heroes you are on a day to day basis. I just hope you two are well and feel in your hearts that you have done what you need to do. The last few times I tried to call we had a bad connection, I am so sorry for this.

    And I am so sorry things went south for me and I could not help you more. You let me know what I can do and I will try, it’s all about trying at least, right? We have watched your journey closely and have cheered your every step. I have had some bad luck along the way and thank goodness it came my way and not yours. I love you like family and only wish you guys good luck and health the whole time. It was so hard for me and Tara and her boyfriend when we watched you go.

    I am still here and am at the same number and address should you need anything. If I can do anything to make up for my time away let me know.

    I notice in the news Burma is gaining some space and time, good for you and all those who helped make it noticeable. All i care about now it getting you guys back home, safe and healthy. Let me know if I can help. Times are hard everywhere but I will do what I can, as I have always tried to. I am still so sorry if I fell behind in what you needed. i see what you have accomplished and I knew from day one you would do what you needed to do. Just get home safe now and keep fighting is all I ask. We need you as a force of encourgement and strength. You two are very much missed.
