"We Tibetans are looking for a legitimate and meaningful autonomy, an arrangement that would enable Tibetans to live within the framework of the People’s Republic of China."

WE CAN AND WE MUST

October 17, 2011

By Tsoltim N. Shakabpa


I have vanquished evil with good
And conquered cancer with prayers
I have found how an Apple changed the world
And experienced momentous changes in my life


I have read David killed Goliath
And sighted little ants subdue hornets
I have observed diminutive termites destroy houses
And watched tiny seeds bloom into gorgeous flowers


I have witnessed people power topple dreadful dictators
And noticed that everything is impermanent in this world
I have established that dreams can be realized if put into action
And heard a voice in the wilderness overcome racial discrimination


I have seen non-violent movements achieve independence for countries 
And viewed a commando shoot down the world's most feared terrorist
I have observed the moon reflect the sun's rays to shed light upon the earth at night
And discovered how inquisitive tinkering in a garage led to life changing achievements in technology


So can Tibetans achieve freedom from China?
Yes we can and we must!
