It is with much distress and worries that I type these lines. I've been watching the sad sad news from London like everybody else. Like everybody else, I'm shocked and speechless about the things that happened this morning right in the heart of London. I am - I guess like most of us - worried about my friends who live in the UK. My thoughts and support is with them and I am sure that we all send our prayers to the citizens of London and to Britain in general. I am not at all a spiritual person, but there's one peace prayer I couldn't get out of my mind today...

Never Give Up
 
Never give up
No matter what is going on
Never give up
 
Develop the heart
Too much energy in your country
Is spent developing the mind
Instead of the heart
Develop the heart
 
Be compassionate
Not just with your friends
But with everyone
Be compassionate
 
Work for peace
In your heart
And in the world
Work for peace
 
And I say again
Never give up
No matter what is going on around you
Never give up

His Holiness, the XIV Dalai Lama
