Day 16 - A picture of someone who inspires you

One of my most favorite and treasured experiences of my life was sitting in audience the His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. An amazing man of faith and humanity - He truly believes in and sees the good in people and wants nothing but peace and happiness for all.

I was fortunate and sat at a peace conference in Denver, in audience of 11 Noble Peace Prize recipients, including the Dalai Lama and Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu. The words they spoke were real and true and seem so simple - just be kind.

The Dalai Lama and Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu are old friends now and actually were silly on stage, sitting side by side and talking and giggling while others spoke at the podium - like naughty school children.
