Well, I have to tell you the best part of the day spent in his presence was not only feeling some of his humility rub off on you, but also seeing him in his baseball cap! As many in here know, I am a huge fan of baseball caps, and when he put one on, I began to laugh, and couldn't stop along with a lot of others in the crowd, including His Holiness. He wears it to keep out of the harsh lights, but it was pretty nifty seeing him wearing one I tell you. He has of late several presentations, all different on global and personal peace. He tends to keep off the topic of politics and his people, but you can't help but hold in your heart the passion he feels for them before you leave as his love of Tibet shines through. Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu was there on the one of the days we attended, and the humor bounced back and forth between those two was like two children playing and you could tell they were indeed dear friends. Again, this is something one should not miss, and well worth attending if you can get tickets.
