Dalai Lama: "In today's highly interdependent world, individuals and nations can no longer resolve many of their problems by themselves. We need one another. We must therefore develop a sense of universal responsibility... It is our collective and individual responsibility to protect and nurture the global family, to support its weak members, and to preserve and tend to the environment in which we all live." quoted @ Invitation to the United Nations' International Year of Reconciliation 2009
On the Web you will find a version that states: "Dalai Lama has to say for each year..."
