In 1972, Thay spoke at the first United Nations Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm, Sweden. This historical event was videotaped. Recently, one of the Dutch sisters in Plum Village shared it with us. At the time of the tape, the United States was still engaged in the Viet Nam War and Thich Nhat Hanh had escaped the turmoil to share his message of peace. As inspiring and applicable today as it was back then!
