  • Dave Norris should be extremely happy.

  • I don’t know about Dave, but I am glad that the visit has been scheduled. I expect it will be a tough ticket to get but I’d like to take my son to see the Dalai Lama. Once we were watching something about him on TV and he made the comment that violence has not been a very successful strategy for resolving conflicts.That really resonated with my (then) young son who immediately began repeating the phrase ” not very successful” over and over.

  • @blockhead, was you son being bullied?

    “violence has not been a very successful strategy for resolving conflicts” neither has non-violence, especially for Tibet.

  • No, it wasn’t about him being bullied. I think it was more about watching daily news about Iraq on TV and feeling that all the military force in the world was not producing positive change, and looking for another way.
