today, august 7th 2008, is the day before the opening ceremony of the olympic games in beijing. on this day, millions of people from all over the world will light a candle and say yes to freedom in tibet! find out more here on the candles for tibet site.
i know, this is a bit of a repeat from my post yesterday but this is important enough to repeat it. important things need to be repeated, and thought and talked about over and over again.
what i’m thinking today: yes, this is about tibet. about lighting the candle of freedom in the black night of oppression.
it’s also about lighting the candle of peace activism in the dim chaos of war, aggression and lovelessness.
it’s about lighting the candle of thoughtfulness and reflection in the shadowland of olympic consumerism.
and because it’s also about lighting the candle of healing in nights of pain and sorrow, i’d like to invite my fellow hosts from the carnival of healing to rise up together and each to bring healing thoughts and light to the world on this special day.
tomorrow, august 7th 2008, is the day before the opening ceremony of the olympic games in beijing. on this day we aim to create the world’s greatest LIGHT PROTEST, when at least 100 million people from all over the world will light a candle and say YES to freedom in tibet! find out more here on the light a candle for tibet web site.
i just had to include one more youtube video here. please watch this stunning production all the way to the end. the images are as beautiful as the voice and person of tibetan freedom singer yangchen lhamo. and amidst the beauty, we are reminded of the plight of this breathtaking country.
