I am feeling all sorts of awful. I really wish we'd been able to interview Norbu live for our digital civilization event. I just got on Skype for the first time in a while, and Norbu immediately sent me this:
[12/9/2010 8:44:14 PM] Norbu: hiu there
Norbu: thanks for your help in spreading infor about Tibet n likewiase
Norbu: Here is the answer forthe Q you asked:
Norbu: What is the one thing that you want to tell the world about Tibetans?
- First of all, we’ve lost our beloved fatherland to China in 1959, since then we lived in exile for over 50 Years under the Leadership oh His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama. Whatever we are today is all because of the tireless effort of H.H.
- Secondly, we’re struggling with so many things here in Exile; from regaining our Tibet back to preservation of our Tibetan Language, Culture and Identity against the all odds of world of diversity and modernization.
- We are people under threat & we’re in despair. We definitely need your support!
- People of the World (esp. the World Leaders) there’s something called Humanity & Righteousness than mere Economic Development! You got to RE-THINK on the ground of truthfulness, humanity & genuine global issues concerning all people of world!
Norbu: thanlks to you all for enlightening others about the Tibet and its cause...we really appreciate your help and continued support...
