Last evening my wife Vicky, daughter Gabrielle and I attended an event at Butler Community College in Butler, PA which was part of the International Tibet Independence Movement’s Peace Ride. In brief, this is a 600 mile bike ride from Washington, D.C. to Toronto, ON with the purpose of raising awareness of the plight of the Tibetan people and ultimately securing their freedom from Chinese occupation. Many of the riders are exhiled Tibetans who suffered incredible hardships during their lives in Tibet under Communist Chinese occupation and in turn had to escape on foot across the Himalaya mountains to freedom. The riders took turns sharing their stories with the people in attendance, it was a very engaging and emotional event. I encourage anyone who is on the path of these riders to please take some time to visit with them and contribute in any way possible.
