Video: Hilary, Daw Suu, Barak in Burma

I found this video clip of Barak Obama and Hilary Clinton arriving at the home of Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Peace Prize winner and leader of Burma’s nonviolent democracy movement, to be moving and informative.

Watch how Barak bows slightly to Daw Suu. Watch how Hilary gets out of the car. Watch how the two women greet each other and hold hands. Watch later how Barak offers respect at the temple.

Even without Obama’s inspiring words about peace and freedom, I found the actions and gestures in this clip very moving.
