sidewalk art: II

We must try to develop a more compassionate attitude and reduce hatred or ill feeling toward one another. That is something like inner disarmament. At the same time, external disarmament and internal disarmament should go together side by side. Internal and external disarmament in a combined way, step by step can change the world; the world can be safer, more peaceful, more harmonious. Then the world surely can become a happy human home.
Tenzin Gyatso (born July 6, 1935) 14th Dalai Lama

The street art is fantastic.

So is the Dalai Lama, who I get to go see this coming Wednesday when he gives a talk right down the street from me at the Capitol bldg in Washington DC.

Thank you for the quote. Inner disarmament. Yes!!
