The Dalai Lama spoke for over an hour, emphasizing compassion, positive emotions, and the rising above our differences of religion and culture. We must disarm individually, if we hope to disarm on the global scale, he said, promoting a message of world peace along the lines of Martin Luther King, whom he praised, and Mahatma Gandhi.
Thousands of Atlantans applauded his message through the fog.
