THE OLYMPIC HANDSHAKE

Let us join our brothers and sisters throughout the world in another action in support of
Tibet. It is a great concept and is a handshake passed from the Dalai Lama through thousands of people online from person to person and intended to reach China. It is an expression of care and friendship for the people of China and support of a harmonious Olympics, and also a person to person expression of concern at the Chinese government's treatment of the people of Tibet, support of other repressive governments, and repression of rights in other parts of China. Let us all reach out in The Olympic Handshake, in the spirit of non-violence and peace always shown by the Dalai Lama who is my hero.
