SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA – Local woman Sandra Lumia is furious over the military’s hostile government takeover in the southeast Asian country of Myanmar, yet her plan to address the issue is still unclear.
“This is an outrage!” said Mrs. Lumia, “I was scrolling through the New York Times and read about the coup a few weeks ago. I’ve spent days researching Aung San Suu Kyi and the entire country’s history! She won the Nobel Prize for goodness sake and now the country has just been taken over by a bunch of military thugs? Someone needs to do something!”
Just what that something is remains unclear to this point.
“I mean, I haven’t technically done anything that would impact the situation but I have lost a tremendous amount of sleep over it! Doesn’t that count for something?” Mrs. Lumia continued.
“I’m sure eventually someone will create a GoFundMe for Aung San Suu Kyi’s release or to buy starving people food or something. I’ll give a couple bucks then.”
As for posting about the event on her social media to grow awareness?
“Oh no, I don’t want to be that guy who’s posting about stuff like that. No matter how outrageous it might be.”
What, then, is the path moving forward?
“Really the only thing I can do is to continue to sacrifice my mental health and hope someone else does something. That’s the best plan I have at the moment,” she concluded.
