“If You are feeling helpless, help someone” Aung San Suu Kyi

In November 2015 I spent a month travelling Myanmar (Burma).

I was touched by the beauty of the people, their gentleness, kindness, generosity of spirit. The energy of people and this country will stay with me always.

One day a young girl was asking me to purchase a wooden ruler. I said no having bought enough gifts. About to move on, I stopped to  read the message on the ruler. A message from Aung San Suu Kyi. I bought the ruler.

The message not to ignore helplessness. These people are poor but kind and rich in spirit and community. It was an amazing trip. I am blessed.

“Myanmar is the most generous country in the world with nine out of 10 adults donating money to charity and half volunteering their time
