Come hell or high water!

July 9, 2017
We need zeal and perseverance to realize our goal. Once in a boat race in Pathein, rowers stopped paddling and lifted their oars when they achieved a slight lead over their competitors’ boat. We, the Myanmar people, to often give up before reaching their goal. We can say this is the Myanmar spirit under enslavement. I warn all of you against this spirit. Come hell or high water, you must never give up.
