Aizawl, March 5: Netizens across Mizoram on Thursday joined the people of Myanmar in mourning the death of 19-year-old Kyal Sin, known as Angel, who was shot in the head and got killed during a pro-democracy rally in Myanmar’s second largest city Mandalay on Wednesday.

The phrase "Everything will be OK" printed on her t-shirt when she died became a refrain for many netizens who posted photos of her with accompanying words of mourning on social media.

“I felt so humbled when I came across this photo (of Kyal Sin). Before she actually died, she had already given her all for the country that she loved. The noble sacrifice that she made for her country makes me feel so little. Dear lady, the way you die will make you live forever,” Lalnghinglova Hmar, influential journalist and popular sports promoter, wrote on Facebook.

The photo that Hmar talked about is an edited photo of Angel holding a tattered Myanmar flag with pro-democracy activists with three-hand salute in the background, created by Aizawl-based graphic designer who goes by the name Moitea Adhiriki on Facebook.

“Brave Little Girl…Your Death will not be in vain…Rest in Peace Ma Kyal Sin…You are an inspiration not only for the people in Myanmar, you’re an inspiration to all of us,” Adhikiri posted on his Facebook wall on Thursday.

Hours later, this photo was reposted and shared by hundreds of netizens in Mizoram with heart-touching poems and captions.

“RIP Ma Kyal Sin (Angel). I have never been more proud to know someone and to call someone my role model. You have taught me so many things,” wrote another user David Lalrinchhana Tlanglian.

Quoting William Wallace from Braveheart movie, another user wrote: "Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you'll live... at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take... OUR FREEDOM!"

“The 19-year-old girl has died for a cause. Behold, her legacy will be retold by generations to come. She will be remembered as a hero,” one of the most celebrated singers in Mizoram Vanlalsailova also posted on Facebook.

Angel, a dancer and Taekwando instructor, was among several others killed during Myanmar’s anti-coup protests on Wednesday.

Despite the “Everything will be Ok” print on her T-Shirt, Angel seemed to have known that it would not be okay for she had listed her blood type on her Facebook page, her phone number, and said her organs were available for donation if anything were to happen to her.
