Freed Burmese democracy icon prays with son at sacred Buddhist site

Rangoon, Myanmar - Democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi, pictured, prayed with her younger son at Burma's most sacred Buddhist site Wednesday after her recent release, revisiting the spot where she launched her political career. The Nobel Peace Prize winner waited for Kim Aris, 33, to join her before visiting the holy site, the scene of her first rousing speech in 1988 calling for democracy in the military-ruled country. In accordance with c us-tom, the pair, wearing Burma's traditional dress, prayed at the corners of the Shwedagon Pagoda linked to their birthdays, before donating flowers and pouring water on to statues. Asked what she prayed for, she laughed and replied, "I cannot reveal it. Otherwise, my wishes might not be fulfilled."
