From the director:
Folks, I wish you all very happy singing and hope that it goes well. It may not be big and organised, but it surely will bring joy to all, especially to those who are in Tibet — letting them know that the world does care about Tibet.

I may not be there physically, but I will be there in spirit, and all my good wishes will be there. I tried to get to NYC but the US embassy denied me a visa. The Belgian visa is still being processed. (Exile Tibetans in India travel with Identity Certificate in place of a passport, issued by the Indian government.)

Finally I thank Tawo Lobsang Palden for the song and Tawo Riga for singing the song. My thanks to all the participants in Brussels and NYC for making the event a success, and to all who helped me in so many different ways. My mother Tsering Dolkar and younger brother Namgyal Wangchuk travelled from Vermont to NYC for the event.

— Lobsang Wangyal

lyrics

1. (World ecology) Come join me all Let us walk together
For a better world As one family

Don't let the devil
Laugh and dance forever
This world is our only home.
2. (Tibet) Don't let me die, I am your brother
For the sake of love And humanity

Cause if I die
The truth will die forever
Don't let the evil play its game.
Refrain: Hand in hand Let us walk
For a brighter future for us all
Side by side We will dream:
Justice will prevail and bring us peace.

Hand in hand Let us walk
For a brighter future for us all
Side by side We will dream:
Justice will prevail in the end.
3. (The world) Don't turn away
When they take your neighbour
Don't sell your soul
For money that drinks blood

Don't deny the justice
You once pledged to keep.
This is your father's legacy.
Refrain: Hand in hand ...

Written and composed by Tawo Lobsang Palden
