I met this man today. Tibetan monk Palden Gyatso and the two nuns travelling with him visited my school today and spoke to us of the situation in Tibet, as well as their years of torture as political prisoners of the Chinese Communist regime. I still find it difficult to believe the sickening cruelties mankind is capable of inflicting upon one another.

Marcelina has a far more eloquent description of events, so I’ll refer you to her LJ.
