Walk for Tibet walkers will honor Jigme Norbu with a mini-walk in St. Augustine Florida on Saturday February 18, 2012. Jigme, nephew of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, was struck and killed last Feb. 14 on the first day of his 300 mile Walk for Tibet Florida. The walk, which continued along the coast to West Palm Beach, was in support of Ambassadors for World Peace, developing leaders seeking Human Rights, Freedom for Tibet and all oppressed peoples and World Peace.
Many of the original small band of walkers and local singers from St. Augustine, along with Buddhist Monk Tuk from Orlando, Wangchuk Dorjee from Colorado, Myessa Myrick from Washington DC, and Donna Kim-Brand will regroup and start as we did last year; With a blessing on the pier overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway, then walking past the Fountain of Youth Park and meeting public who want to join at 11:30 in the park at Lady of Leche Chapel. We will Walk for Tibet approximately one mile to Lion’s Bridge on St. Augustine’s downtown side.
We will join another group at the accident site in Palm City at 3pm for a memorial service then walk back to Hammock Wine & Cheese Shoppe where the owners will host music and light snacks in honor of Jigme and AmbassadorsforWorldPeace.org.
The mission lives on.
