CONDOLENCE MESSAGE FROM KALON TRIPA
27 October, 2002r>
Office of Senator Paul Wellstone
Court International Building
2550 University Avenue
United States of America
My colleagues in the Kashag join me in expressing our profound condolence to the family of Senator Paul Wellstone who along with his wife, daughter and three staffers tragically passed away in an air crash.
We Tibetans have lost a true friend who has consistently supported the just cause of the people of Tibet. The American people have lost a good leader who brought the concerns of the American people to the attention of the American government. The surviving family of Senator Paul Wellstone has lost a good father and a grandfather.
The Tibetans in Dharamsala are offering prayers as a mark of our deep sense of bereavement. Once again my colleagues in the Kashag join me in offering our prayers and condolence for the tragic passing away of a great American who was a champion of the Tibetan cause.
