A MOMENT CAPTURED:

ON THE STRIP, A SIGN OF PEACE

On a stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard saturated with advertisements for self-indulgence and worldly goods, the face of the 14th Dalai Lama gazes out over the shoulders of Emmanuella Jeanlouins on Thursday night.

The poster featuring the exiled Tibetan leader says:

“He doesn’t just wish for Peace. He works for it. HOPE. Pass it on.”

The poster is from the Foundation for a Better Life — a nonprofit organization that spreads messages of positive community values.

Jeanlouins left strife-ridden Haiti 10 months ago. She is studying to be a medical assistant.
