Burma, where peace should be golden |

Burma, where peace should be golden - Rev. Patricia Templeton op-ed - "The golden spires of the Shwedagon Pagoda glimmered in the background of pictures from Burma in recent days, where thousands of monks dressed in saffron robes marched barefoot in the streets in the country's largest antigovernment demonstration in decades. I watched with sadness, remembering my own Burma days of a quarter-century ago, particularly one transcendent moment of peace and hope that stands in sharp contrast to the violence and fear that now pervade the country."
