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.
