October, 17, 2007 - Today, the United States officially celebrated H.H. The Dalai Lama, in a ceremony that took place in the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., awarding the Nobel Laureate and Temporal Head of the Government of Tibet in Exile and the Spiritual Head of the Tibetan people.
I just want to share my happiness about this event, as it recognizes a great human being worthy of enormous respect (and who I had the pleasure of meeting, briefly). It is also a statement in support of human rights and religious freedom.
Would that all of US foreign policy were so enlightened.
Thanks for the GREAT Hub!! Blessings be with the HH the Dalai Lama!! I was in LA at Universal Studios last year, September 13, 2006, with 10,000 others the moment HH the Dalai Lama received the news of his upcoming U.S. Congressional Gold Medal!! Interesting to me was that HH the Dalai Lama resisted speaking out politically against the War in Iraq until right after this announcement!! I applaude, and admire HH the Dalai Lama!! http://www.dalailama.com
