Gary and Nancy Visit With the Dalai Lama, below:
The Dalai Lama talked at length for three days when visiting Portland about peace education. Right from the beginning the earliest age; teaching students about peace; he felt this was the only way to bring world peace. In my meeting with him we talked about working closer together and I will be focusing on our Student Peace & Leadership Program and expanding work with him, as a Nobel Peace Laureate.
