Candle for Tibet: FREEDOM IS NOT JUST ANOTHER WORD

THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING

Light a Candle for Tibet at Your Home, With Friends or in Public.
When:  Saturday, 23 August at 9 p.m.
http://www.candle4tibet.org/en/beginning

On Saturday, 23 August, the night before the Olympic Games end in
Beijing, we will bring our light to the front of EVERY Chinese
Embassy in the world.

Our light will say that we will not let Tibet be forgotten after the games end.

The Candle for Tibet initiative is a most wonderful thing, fitting in
with the Tibetan tradition of lighting votive lamps in long rows in
temples and in special butter lamp houses outside.

We seem powerless to ameliorate conditions on the ground in the
present crisis moment.

This peaceful prayer vigil, since it focuses the minds of many
millions on the different sufferings of tormented and tormentor
alike, is a powerful way to intervene.

And it does not preclude anything else we can think of and do further on.

I hope everyone who reads this will join in this important effort.
