Thich Nhat Hanh

Thich Nhat Hanh is one the the tightest human beings alive. I think he might think the tighten up report humorous, but he also might say that there is far more that unites us as a human family than there is to divide us. In my view, a subway ride is always a more peaceful experience if I focus on what good is present in my surroundings, rather than what isn't. However, I contemplate what his message means for fighting social injustice. He is a Buddhist monk who was exiled from Vietnam for speaking out against the war from both sides, and was once nominated by Dr. King for the Noble Peace Prize. He lives in France in a monastery named "Village of the Plum Trees." He is also really cool to listen to: Tight Nod, tight.
