Highway to Lhasa. ~ via Frank Tedesco

Tibetan Song

May this song help raise awareness for peaceful coexistence for the people of Tibet.

What makes a nation great is not its size

It’s not the missiles not its fearsome hosts

It’s not the buildings not the oil supplies

It’s not some worn-out tales of ancient ghosts

Its people hold the secret of its power

Its people who disdain the way of force

Though murderous oppression knell the hour

Its peaceful people turn their country’s course

For who will stop the army of the meek

And who can bend the will that has no fear

And who will quell the wailing of the weak

The cry for freedom agonized and clear

The mighty crush the small and have their way

But peaceful souls will rise to win the day

It is my fervent hope that the public will awaken to the ongoing human tragedy in Tibet as a matter of “justice and morality,” which is how it was described by H H Dalai Lama in Boston recently. Toward that end, please consider sharing Highway To Lhasa with friends and supporters.
