#R2BC Friday’s #GoodNews – Great Day in Myanmar

The, undeniably, great news today is the NLD victory in Myanmar and the step closer to a genuine freedom and democracy. After years of House Arrest and keeping the faith for NLD leader Aung San Suu Kyi I cannot begin to imagine the sense of relief, celebration and vindication for one of the world’s most iconic advocates for peace and justice.

Another story that jumped out of me ahead of the weekend was this touching story about Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, talking about his experiences and battles with mental illness. As regular readers will know, I’m no stranger to the battles with anxiety and depression, and to see well known personalities, recognised primarily for their strength talking candidly about mental health issues is another step forward in lifting the veil on invisible illness.

Appropriately it’s also World Kindness Day. 🙂

Read, enjoy, and have a great weekend.
