Diary in the darkness (10) by Uncle Tu Me

I woke up after 9:00 am.

The weather is quite hot. It is 84 degrees Fahrenheit.

I have nightmares at night. In the dream, the dictator’s army is spread out all over the city, machine-gunning everyone. I was walking between the places where they were shooting. The light was faint, but the flames from the gun were constantly appearing from all over the place. Gunshots are also noisy.

Our group ran into the Papa Win cinema in fear.

The movie theater is full of people. I decided to watch a movie and looked for the seat number written on the ticket. I was still groping in the dark when I heard a loud explosion outside the cinema. In front of the movie theater, there is a big  hole. We ran without direction scaredly. All the doors of the theater are closed. A man told us to wait. Not long after, a movie theater employee opened the door and we ran out as quickly as we could.

It’s dark outside. The whole Suley Road was filled with a large crowd. A  truck pulled up and we had to jostle. A loud noise came from the car and the smoke came out. I heard someone shout that the car has no wheels. Helicopters disguised as elephants in the sky are constantly bombing.

When I woke up from the dream, it was already 2 am. I’m not happy to go back to sleep. After opening the Vipassana dhamma of Lord Janakabhiwantha, he started to fall asleep.

When I wake up in the morning, my whole body is weak. I had an appointment to see a dentist this morning, so I took a shower and went to The Graces clinic near the local market.

The 2 patients waiting in front of us are discussing whether their daughter should go to school or not. Their daughter’s friends are already in school, so now she is two grades above her. The army is offering a special sliding price with 2 grades per year. But their exam is not recognized by the NUG government, so both parents and students are at a loss as to what to do. Those who can afford it are leaving in droves for third countries.

Arter two weeks, the army of the Military Council bombed a school opened by local residents in Diparing Township, and the whole world was shocked. The media said that 14 people, including school children, were killed

The saying that war destroys everything is bloody true.

When I came back from the clinic, there were three or four homeless people sitting on the ground drinking beer at the side of the street. Everyone in the neighborhood knows that they are the people who hunt and steal in the neighborhood.

After a few days, they were caught stealing by the local community. The head of the street informed the police to come and jailed them. The police chief said that the people of the neighborhood must ensure the safety of the policemen. If you want a thief to be detained at the police station, you have to pay 100,000 to 300,000 Ks per thief, so the head of the street  lets the thief go. Now they are drinking alcohol on the side of the street.

Neighborhood security seems to have fallen into the hands of thieves. Yes, when the power of the entire country is in the hands of a pirate army, this is natural.
