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!
