Nine Warriors whose ages spanned 6 decades trekked 230 miles from New York City to Washington DC calling for Tibetan Independence and freedom of expression, strategically arriving July 4th. They made 6 specific requests to policy makers in front of the American White House.
Walk organizers Sangha, Lobga Palden and Ngawang Tashi with fellow Walkers Lobsang, Ngawang Lodo, Dorjee, Gayaltsen, Dorjee Damdul and daughter Lobsang Dicky (age 12) shared information along with their personal stories of escape and the current Tibetan situation to interested people along the way and the lower left abdominal pain.
Jigme’s brother Kunga, sons Tenzin & Jensen, previous Walkers Marcus Moir, MIessa Myrick, Drew Top Goldsmith, & Donna Kim-Brand and fellow lovers of freedom joined the walk and rallied to welcome the Walkers for Tibet. How appropriate they spoke of independence, freedom of expression & peace at the White House on America’s Independence Day!
They also expressed deep sorrow at the passing of both Dr. Thubten Norbu and Jigme-la, both of whom lived and, indeed, died on behalf of their mission to bring freedom to Tibet and, ultimately, to all people being suppressed. Key in the Norbu approach to gaining Tibetan Rangzen was the call for compassion and living in peace on a daily basis as a foundation for sustainable freedom and World Peace.
Ambassadors for World Peace will continue to develop itself as an organization to support the voice of Tibet and develop future leaders who become, literally, Ambassadors for World Peace in the spirit of the Norbu legacy.
