The Dalai Lama arrived in Memphis yesterday to receive the National Civil Rights Museum's Freedom Award. Residents will remember the visit for a number of reasons, including the way the mayor of Memphis greeted his Holiness:
Both Shelby County Mayor Wharton and Memphis Mayor Pro Tem Lowery were on hand to greet His Holiness. Mayor Lowery told the Dalai Lama, "Here we also have a tradition," as he showed His Holiness how to fist bump. "You say you've got a sense of humor," Lowery said, "I've always wanted to say Hello Dalai."
