Aung San Suu Kyi celebrates her father's legacy with Myanmar's next generation. Monday marked the 97th birthday of her father, General Aung San, also the country's independence hero and the man who helped create the Union of Burma. He was assassinated in 1947, before then-Burma was given autonomy by the British. Suu Kyi's pro-democracy party designated his birthday as Children's Day to help kids remember the country's heroes.
